Neuse River Float
Aug 19 @ 1:30 pm – 5:00 pm

When it’s summertime, and all you want to do is lay in water sipping a cold drink, we’ve got the perfect afternoon for you!

Float down the Neuse River with us while sipping a wild ice cream float listening to summertime tunes!

AUGUST 19, 2017

9601 Capital Blvd
Wake Forest NC, 27587

✔ ICE CREAM FLOATS – Piedmont Picnic will provide DIY ice cream fixins and a wild soda bar at the launch point to get you started with an ice cream float to sip along the way.

✔ BOATS + TRANSPORTATION – We’re partnering with Paddle Creek to provide all transportation to the launch site from the initial meetup/take-out site. You can choose to BYO Float or to purchase a ticket that includes the rental of a kayak or canoe.

✔ MUSIC – Along the way we’ll have the Neuse’s first floating DJ for you to listen to for maximum summertime feels while you make your way down river.

✔ PRIZES + #NCWATERLOVE – We’ll be celebrating one of Raleigh’s (and North Carolina’s) greatest resources along the way — the Neuse River! Triangle Land Conservancy will help us celebrate this waterway with a photo scavenger hunt – snap photos from their list, tag them, and win prizes!

A portion of all proceeds will go to Triangle Land Conservancy to support the important work they do to protect our area land and watersheds.

>>TICKET OPTION #2 – BYO FLOAT: includes event ticket, complimentary ice cream float, and transportation to launch point, but you’ll BRING YOUR OWN FLOAT to ride down the river.
