Rally brings music, volunteers to Colorado River
Friday, July 24, 2015 by Nora Ankrum
Keep Bastrop County Beautiful is hosting the Bastrop River Rally this weekend, a now-annual event after the success of last year’s original, for which 80 volunteers showed up to help clean a 6-mile stretch of the Colorado River, some by foot and others by canoe. The event is much bigger this year, featuring a roundup of activities including the river cleanup plus a 4.5-mile Bastrop River Run/Walk, a traveling exhibit from the Colorado River Coalition, a keynote address and environmental briefing from County Judge Paul Pape, and a party with live music at Neighbor’s Kitchen and Yard. The rally takes place Sunday, July 26 from 7 a.m. to noon. To learn more or register for the event, visit the Bastrop River Rally website.
