The biggest party of the summer season in Parker is this Saturday. The 44th Annual Parker Tube Float is scheduled for Saturday, June 11.
Pre-registration closed June 5. Registration on the day of the event is $40 per person.
In addition, there will be a $10 parking fee per vehicle at La Paz County Park. All participants must be at least 13 years of age. There is also a fee of $30 if a group plans to have a motorized vessel assisting them in this event. A no-wake zone will be enforced from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 11 on the route of the float.
The Tube Float will follow a pattern that’s become familiar in recent years. Floaters will park at La Paz County Park and be taken by shuttle bus to the starting point at Buckskin Mountain State Park. Compressors will be available at Buckskin so the floats can be inflated. Once in the Colorado River, they’ll float down the river to the finish line and an after-float party at Pirate’s Den Resort at La Paz County Park.
Blasian Secured Transport of Phoenix will again be on hand with their shuttle buses.
On the day of the event, registration will open at 8 a.m. at County Park and close at 12 noon. The last shuttle bus for Buckskin Mountain State Park will leave shortly after noon. The float will end at 4 p.m. with the lifting of the no-wake zone.
The Parker Tube Float is the major fundraiser for the Parker Regional Chamber of Commerce & Tourism. Funds raised are used by the Chamber to provide services to Parker area businesses.
The event has already drawn many sponsors. More sponsors are welcome.
