Gunnison River Festival set to make a big splash

The 2013 Gunnison River Festival from June 19-23 features plenty of whitewater action at the Gunnison Whitewater Park and on other local waters. The river festival also features the Crested Butte Film Festival.

It’s hot in the city, and the high country beckons.

The Gunnison high country, in particular, with the Gunnison River Festival set for June 19-23.

The events include floats, fishing, movies from the Crested Butte Film Festival and a Solstice Sunset Extravaganza concert on June 21 at Gunnison’s Legion Park.

A whitewater rodeo happens June 21 at the Gunnison Whitewater Park just west of town, and the next day will feature flat-water action on Blue Mesa Reservoir.

Plenty of opportunities to be cool as summer officially gets kicking.
