The always-competitive River Raft Regatta takes place on the Little Pigeon River in Downtown Gatlinburg. This year’s fun-filled Fourth of July celebration begins at the bridge near the former Christ in the Smokies Museum and the winner will cross the finish line at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. If you do not have a floatable, and still want to participate, you can rent a rubber ducky with proceeds going to the Gatlinburg Chamber Foundation.
Eventgoers can opt to enter a rented rubber duck into the competition (or bring your own at no cost) for $2 or 3 for $5 onsite. All proceeds go to the Gatlinburg Chamber Foundation and is a great way to for everyone to participate in this fun, thrilling event. This year’s River Raft Regatta will issue trophies to those who finish 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the Treasure, Duck and Most Creative Float categories.
