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."
Where some of us stayed last time - Crowne Plaza de arts... Fair price, river
VIEW, walking distance to the island, bar, TOILETS!.. . NO PETS at Crowne. And
its a longish uphill walk back from the island so don't forget to bring your
days stuff. Unless you like longish uphill walks.
We do have some crashspace and transportation options for those in need.
