From the Steamboat Pilot & Today (Joel Reichenberger):

[Pete Van De Carr] said a strong test for damage the economy might bring will come with the Yampa River Festival, set for May 23 and 24. The festival will be largely unchanged from its format a year ago, he said. The only main addition is a riverboarding segment. The event again will be capped by the Paddling Life Pro Invitational, set for Memorial Day, May 25. “It’s going good,” Van De Carr said about the event’s organization. “It will definitely be fun again this year. This time we’re kind of going back to our bluegrass roots. We always used to have bluegrass bands play, but got away from it. Now we’re going back, and it should be a lot of fun.”
