get more from BRO

The largest whitewater festival in the state of Virginia is going down this weekend. The 6th Annual Retro Video Night takes place on Saturday, December 7th in Richmond.

A community paddle will kick off the event at 11:00am, so come join the RVA paddling locals for some kayaking tips and fun on the James. After all, it’s the James River we’re celebrating here!

Anything can happen when paddlers get together for a video night.

The video portion of the event will be hosted at The Camel starting at 5:00pm. Here, they will host a variety of homemade whitewater videos from boaters all over the state of Virginia.  This year’s party theme is red carpet, so interpret that as you wish by wearing a suit, glittery get up, or speedo. Hey, they said loose interpretation…

Both portions of the event are FREE of charge so grab your paddle and your tux and head for the James!
