Event Details

Don’t miss your chance for the best view in RVA of the Fireworks on the James this 4th of July. Raft with us to a secluded island on the James River and watching the big show while enjoying a catered picnic from Goatocado.

We will meet you at Forest Hill Park at 6:00 before shuttling up to our put-in point about 3 miles up river. From there you will embark on an expedition style* trip with personal gear, blankets and food packed in dry-bags on the raft. About half way down the stretch of river we will stop on a deserted island in the middle of the James. Relax on a sandy beach, in the river soaking, or on warm bedrock next to a fire. In addition to fresh fruit, hot dogs, & s’mores, we will be serving both vegetarian and chicken options from local restaurant Goatocado.

The main event comes shortly after dark with fireworks reflecting off the river as you snuggle up with loved ones and take in the moment. Once the smoke settles we will paddle a short distance under the moon’s glow to our takeout point.
