Reno River Festival 2009 hits the rapids in downtown Reno starting this Friday, continuing through Mother's Day on Sunday. The River Festival has become one of Reno's big events and is major fun for everyone. In addition to pro and amateur kayaking competition, there will be a charity raft race, an expo featuring the latest in outdoor gear, lots of food and drink, and music at the Wingfield Park amphitheater. Be sure to see Run Amuck, a two-person relay race and mud fest run between Idlewild Park and the Truckee River Whitewater Park. Spectating is free. Find out where to park and more about the event at our Reno River Festival web page.

Mother's Day is this Sunday during the Reno River Festival. If water sports aren't her thing, check out our article about Mother's Day in Reno / Tahoe to find more ways to treat mom, from fun outings to numerous choices in Mother's Day dining.
