Drag Boat Festival Rescheduled for This Weekend At Red Bluff Recreation Area

Drag Boat Festival Rescheduled for This Weekend At Red Bluff Recreation Area

Willows, May 27, 2008 - The annual International Hot Boat Association Nitro Nationals Drag Boat Festival previously scheduled for the Memorial Day weekend at Lake Red Bluff in the Red Bluff Recreation Area was canceled due to unsafe winds on the water surface. The event is now rescheduled for Saturday and Sunday, May 31 and June 1.

Trail access and Sale Lane entry into the Red Bluff Recreation Area will be closed starting at 6:00 a.m. on Friday, May 30, through 6:00 p.m. on Monday, June 2.

During the event the Forest Service boat ramp below the Diversion Dam will remain open with an alternate access route through the event parking area. Sycamore Grove Campground will be open during the event and available to the public on a first come-first served basis.

The purpose for the closure is to provide for public safety, prevent theft and vandalism of facilities, vendor(s) equipment, and prevent access into the permit area during the event, said Paul Montgomery, Grindstone District Implementation Officer.

The Drag Boat Festival is an authorized event under a Special Use Permit issued by the Forest Service to New Entertainment Concepts. It has been a long standing event in Red Bluff and generates substantial revenue for the local community. Special Use fees from the event provide improvements for the Red Bluff Recreational Area, which is administered by the Mendocino National Forest.
