Riverrock wants footbag to be part of the festival once again! I want to say that last year was really fun..and sunny!... and slobbery... Bring your suntan lotion... For me I feel most engaged when I'm a part of something. Not just by being somewhere , but by actively doing. I think this is why I love footbag, you set up in the middle of an island with a buzzing crowd around, and you CREATE! Last year the crowd really dug the first circle we had. We set out some cones right in the middle of everyone! We were surrounded by supportive people the whole time. There isn't much shade to find so be prepared. After WE KICK, we head to the hotel and then either go to a local bar or back to the island for some food trucks and live music. This kicked some ass last year not going to lie I Love this event! Free music! If you are adventurous you can head to a local park called Carillon where real live NET PLAYERS will be kicking...a rare breed. Lots to do and see in Richmond - come check this festival out!!! Footbag or hacky sack hasn't even made it on Riverrocks wesbite or map , but the people in charge think its some of the coolest stuff they've seen...just not quite sure how to handle it! Here's what the website has to say about the event. " Dominion Riverrock, organized by Venture Richmond and the Sports Backers, is the nation's premier outdoor lifestyle festival, bringing athletes, spectators, musicians, and even dogs to Brownís Island for a three-day festival against the backdrop of downtown Richmondís urban riverfront. The festival features a variety of outdoor sports including trail running, kayaking, biking, bouldering, slacklining, stand up paddleboarding, and dog jumping. The event was designed to promote Richmondís unique riverfront, downtown trails and whitewater rapids to outdoor enthusiasts. As a result of the creation of Dominion Riverrock, there is a stronger appreciation for the value of outdoor recreation throughout the entire Richmond region."
