Park Place Lodge
Fernie Raft Race

Description:

A team raft race from the North Fernie Bridge to West Fernie Bridge. This event has been great fun for over 15 years.

The raft race – a Fernie tradition for the past 15 years – began as a part of a weekend paddle fest in 1999. The event quickly fizzled out, says owner Lynn Muller, but the raft-racing portion of the event was too good to quit. What initially involved only two rafts that year has since grown to a 16-raft race.

Spectators can catch the action between the Fernie Bridges from 7 to 8PM.

And teams now compete for river rocks painted in gold, labeled “best-dressed” and “most sportsmanlike.” It’s practically a holiday in town.

Participants:
$15.00/person
Meet at the Coal Creek Boat Launch at 5:30
Awards and prizes at The Bridge Bistro
For more information or to register a team call CANYON RAFT COMPANY 250 423–7226
