The 2006 eighth annual Ohiopyle Over the Falls Festival proved to be a great success. Hundreds of boaters from all across the nation, along with a few international participants, enjoyed a day of racing, attaining, downriver freestyle, and waterfall running.

Points of Interest:

This year the event had over 200 participants.

Out of those 200 participants, the falls was run about 1,000 times in a single day.

For many, Ohiopyle Falls was their first waterfall.

Dave Fusilli won the Freestyle this year for the second year in a row.

Geoff Calhoun won the “Oliver Cup”, given for being the overall winner in the attainment race as well as the short boat race.

There is a very good chance that Ohiopyle Falls will soon be opened up to paddlers in the Ohiopyle Falls “data base”.

The provisional date for next years Ohiopyle Falls Race is August 25th, 2007.
