The Ohiopyle Falls Festival is happening. The festival will include a downriver sprint, freestyle off the falls, upstream race through Entrance Rapid, a wicked town party, and much much more. So, if you are cool and want to continue to be cool, come out to the Ohiopyle Falls Festival Saturday, September 15, 2007.
Additionally, there has been some concern about the level for the race. Recently the area has been getting a considerable amount of rain which has brought the level of the Lower Yough up considerably. The official word is this:
It does not look good... The Corps of Engineers can adjust the flow from the Yough dam to meet our 1.8 limit but they cannot adjust the flow of various tributaries and only do so much. If we cannot run the falls on Saturday we will try to run the falls on Sunday assuming the water level will permit this. If we can run the falls on Sunday we will still have the town party Saturday night which will now be the beginning of the Festival as apposed to the end.If the water levels are too high for both days, then the event will be rescheduled for September 15, 2007. (UPDATE: Event Rescheduled to the 15th). Information about the event will be updated Thursday, August 23rd at FallsRace.com
