Get Out, Give Back: French Broad Litter Floatilla

get more from BRO

If you like adventuremobiles, inspiring stories, and local vibes, you belong at the 5Point Adventure Film Festival‘s kickoff party and van life rally! Festivities begin at the Salvage Station around 2:45 p.m. with the French Broad Litter Floatilla. Blue Ridge Outdoors and 5Point are partnering with the Live Outside and Play team, as well as ENO, MountainTrue, and NRS to get out and give back to the French Broad River (and we need you!).

Join us at the Salvage Station, our takeout and the later site of the van life rally (begins at 5pm — come check out the Live Outside and Play van!). BYOB (bring your own boat) or RSVP now for a spot on one of the Southern Raft Supply‘s six rafts. We’ll be carpooling to the put-in at Hominy Creek. Participants should come prepared to get down and dirty—gloves, long pants/sleeves, and close-toed shoes are recommended.

Prizes will be awarded at the Salvage Station for “most litter collected,” “strangest piece of trash,” and the overall “Trash-to-Treasure.” Come, bring a friend, and the spirit of adventure! We’ll be hanging at the Salvage Station afterwards giving tours of the Live Outside and Play van. It’s going to be an awesome night!

Email adam@blueridgeoutdoors.com with any questions or to RSVP your spot on a raft!
