Tube Float

Registration is now underway online for the 43rd Parker Tube Float, which is scheduled for Saturday, June 12. The tube float returns in 2021 after being cancelled in 2020 due to state restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Float always sees hundreds of colorful and fanciful floats making their way down the Colorado River. This year’s theme is “This Float’s for You.”

Floaters will set off from 8 a.m. to 12 noon, with the float itself ending at 4 p.m. As has been done in recent years, floaters will arrive and park at La Paz County Park and be bussed to the Tube Float starting line at Buckskin Mountain State Park. The float will head down the Colorado River to the finish line and an after-float party at Pirate’s Den Resort in La Paz County Park.

The registration fee is $25 per person, or $40 per person after June 6.

Volunteers are also needed for this event. To register online, or to sign up to be a volunteer, go to

This event is a fundraiser for the Parker Regional Chamber of Commerce & Tourism and allows them to provide services to local businesses.
