Cheers to 10 Years of Rockin' The River at Panther Island Pavilion
Thank you to everyone that came out and Rocked the River with us this year! Thousands attended the 6-Saturday series of all-day river parties at Panther Island Pavilion. A total of 30 bands played the series including Red Dirt favorites like Cody Canada and the Departed, Chris Colston, Dirty River Boys, John Baumann, Giovannie and the Hired Guns and Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights. It was a fun summer of river floating, cold brews, yummy grub, firework shows and great music. The season ended with a bang! We look forward to Rockin’ the River next year!
