Also part of Riverfest is the Wells River Tumble that has run almost annually since 2004. The race features a mass start and a one-mile paddle to finish. The Wells River is a tributary of the Connecticut River and runs south into it. It is a class I to III river, depending on levels. This race takes place on Sunday, April 23. Racers may run practice laps after they register and before the mandatory racer meeting. The fee is $20 to compete in the race, and $15 for Dartmouth students. Payment can also be made in cash, check, or DA$H for students.
Lastly, to celebrate the weekend’s festivities in style, the Riverfest Party takes place at 9pm on Saturday, April 22 in Tom Dent (in the parking lot above the Ledyard Clubhouse) with raffle prizes from the festival’s sponsors. Free beer and cider (21+) and prizes will be available.
