Make a Splash at Color the River!

It’s that time of the year again – it’s Color the River season!

For the 5th time, Color the River is back! The event, hosted by

Hinton’s Second Saturdays, will take place on Saturday, June 11th

with registration beginning at 9 a.m. at Berry’s Campground. Take

some time to relax and join the community on the largest float

down the Greenbrier River. Bring your tubes and kayaks or rent

them to participate in a fun and exciting adventure!

Community is a big part of why Color the River was created.

Being a connected community does bring some challenges and

hardships, however. Cancer has impacted a lot of our community

member’s lives. With Color the River, the earnings that the event

makes each year goes towards helping the friends and families of

those who have been impacted by cancer. Supporting our fellow

community members by floating down one of our most famous

natural landmarks brings us all closer together.

Color the River is free for all who would like to participate, with

exceptions of parking at $5.00 and any rentals purchased before

the float. Shuttle service will be provided for $5.00 per person. You

can also purchase a commemorative Color the River t-shirt for $20.00!

All proceeds will be used to aid the families affected by cancer in the

Summers County community.

Following the event, local favorite The Stacey Carroll Project will be performing

live on the Courthouse lawn! Enjoy a float down the river and live

music this Saturday!
