The Great Raft Race Is Coming To Oklahoma….And You Won’t Want To Miss It

From 1973-1991, The Great Raft Race in Tulsa was a thriving event. Every Labor Day, hundreds of rafters and over a hundred thousand fans would gather at the Arkansas River for a day of boat racing, fun, laughter and excitement. However, due to certain circumstances, The Great Raft Race vanished for nearly 25 years, but made a return in 2015. This Labor Day, it is returning again on the Arkansas River and will be debuting over 200 rafts.

If you are interested in competing, the deadline for registration in August 20, 2016. You can find more information about the Great Raft Race here.
