This weekend is the signature summer event in the town of Salida. FIBArk (First in Boating on the Arkansas) is America’s oldest whitewater festival. This event first began seventy-one years ago with six boats racing fifty-seven miles down the river from Salida to Canon City. FIBArk now includes something for everyone with whitewater river events, music, food, carnival rides, trail running races, mountain bike races, skate park events, disk golf competition, a parade and more. The river is running high this year and a few classic events such as the Hooligan Race have been cancelled, but there is a ton of stuff going on. See you down at the river.
