Here’s a recap of the Dolores River Festival, from TJ Holmes writing for the Dolores Star via the Cortez Journal. From the article:
The free raft rides proved a popular offering again, with high demand. More than 200 groups went down the river from Riverside Park to Joe Rowell Park with some 25 volunteers acting as guides, helping with put-in and take-out and driving shuttles. “It went really smoothly, and we had a lot of dedicated volunteers helping with the raft ride activities,” Gans said. “It’s a really intensive activity to offer, but we are committed to offering that as a river festival. I think the families really enjoyed the rides this year.”
The fun and wild water competitive kayak races had about 10 participants with prizes awarded to the top three finishers in each category.
