News 12 Then: Do you remember the River Raft Race?

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The Kudzu Ball, the River Roast, Christmas on the River, the Duck Race, the Hot Air Balloon Race.

They all had their day in Chattanooga.

They raised money for charity and kept the locals entertained in the process.

One of those traditions was the River Raft Race.

Simple concept. Create something that floats. Paddle, kick or power your way downstream. Party.

Some created great floating spectacles. Others just threw out inner tubes.

So float along with the 1987 Memorial Weekend version.
