Not a Sierra Club event, but this will be fun and benefit our St. Johns River!!
On July 6th, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., St. Johns Riverkeeper and the Riverside Arts Market are partnering to host “River Ruckus”, to raise a ruckus for the river. River Ruckus is an event aimed at showing Jacksonville that the St. Johns River is more than a scenic view. It is a recreational asset to this city that should be respected, protected, and enjoyed.
The day’s events include a flotilla, celebrity jump, live music, SweetWater Brewing Co. beer tastings, kids river crafts, plus all the great art, crafts, and produce that the Riverside Arts Market offers each Saturday under the Fuller Warren bridge.
First Coast Outfitters Flotilla: At 10am, flotilla patrons will meet at the St. Johns River marina to board their watercrafts and enter the St. Johns River, located directly next to River City Brewing. Slack tide assures a safe and easy travel for anyone on the water this time of day. Bring your kayak, SUP board, jetski, or float! As long as you can row it across the river, we want you out with bells and whistles!
