Mark you calendars for the annual Pueblo Chile & Frijole Festival in Pueblo, Colorado
. The event is Sept 21-23rd
with great food (pepper roasting on site by many local farms), music, and some fun end-of-summer paddling in the Pueblo Whitewater Park.
Scheduled paddling events will take place Sunday the 23rd in the PWP (but the park will also be open to boaters and boarders Friday & Saturday).
Events include a freestyle rodeo
for all levels of participants, the "Pepper Plunge"
raft race (build your own hooligan-style raft with a pepper theme and see how far you can take it through the park!), the "Extreme" rubber ducky race
(buying a duck helps support the Pueblo Paddlers and you can win the jackpot!) and last, but not least, free raft rides
for non-boater family and friends who want to get on the water.
So plan on coming to Pueblo to enjoy some great food, friendly people and one of the state's best whitewater parks! For additonal info call Bob Walker at the Edge 719 583-2021 and keep your eye on this link....Pueblo Boating Beta
