"Top 21 rivers to float this summer in the U.S."-Travel Channel, 2018

The Original Social-Distanced Event

Enjoy a relaxing day of floating the Trinity River with a cold brew. Rent a tube, kayak, paddleboard, pedal boat or bring your own! Landlubbers are welcome too. Bring a towel and catch some rays on the Panther Island beach. From a tube or from the shore, spread out and enjoy open space, fresh air and live music on the Coors Light waterfront stage in the coolest seat in town.

Keep groups to 10 or less, contactless payment options, social distancing and health protocols on site
