11th Annual River Jamboree

Join us at Lynches River County Park for the 11th annual River Jamboree on Saturday, May 2 from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM.

This day of fun for the entire family will feature live animal presentations and stage performers. We’ll have vendors from around the community with great information and activities. Sign up for free canoe excursions and hay rides; cool off in our frozen t-shirt contest and search for treasures in the park scavenger hunt. Kids and grown-ups alike will enjoy the Kids Zone, which features a fossil dig, inflatables, tattoos and face painting; a slackline to test your tightrope-walking skills, plus many more family-friendly activities. Be on the lookout for Scotty the Squirrel – he’ll be on hand for pictures with you and your family.
