Rockin’ the River

The Blue Ridge Outdoors Roadshow was on the move again this weekend, and this time we visited Richmond, Va., for the Dominion Riverrock Festival. This celebration of all things outdoors takes place on and around Brown’s Island on the James River right in the middle of downtown Richmond.

Dominion Riverrock is an annual outdoor celebration highlighting a variety of outdoor adventure sports, including: kayaking, SUP, mountain biking, slacklining, freestyle mountain biking, (deep breath), adventure racing, bouldering, and boatercross. It also includes ultimate air dog performance, a 5K mud run, bouldering, and concerts from top regional headliners. This bonanza of outdoor fun is exactly where Blue Ridge Outdoors wanted to be last weekend.

We set up our booth on Friday and Saturday, and were overwhelmed at how many  people came to visit us. From families to Trek Bicycle Pros, a variety of readers and supporters took the time to say hi to us and learn more about what we do here at BRO. Later, we did a prize giveaway drawing. One lucky individual took home a brand new Crazy Creek chair, while the other won a new ENO light setup. Luckily we were located right next to the freestyle slacklining competition, musical stage, and beer tent.  Needless to say we had a great time.
