40th Annual Parker Tube Float

Buckskin Mountain State Park

June 10, 2017   8am - 4pm


Join us on June 10, 2017 for "40 Floatin' Years!" on the beautiful Colorado River in Parker, AZ. The Great Western Tube Float, more commonly referred to as the Parker Tube Float, will launch at Buckskin Mountain State Park and finish at La Paz County Park just south of Pirate's Den in the event area.

For everyone's safety and comfort, we have shortened the route and relocated the event to just north of the previous event area. This also provides for a more enriching experience and to take in the stunning scenery along the route. While floating, you will see the serene shoreline of both the Arizona and California coasts along the mighty Colorado on the Parker Strip.

The finish line festivities at La Paz County Park event area will include food and beverages for purchase by the Black Pearl Restaurant, live music and our prize drawing for registered participants. Merchandise vendors and sponsors of the event will be on hand in the event area as well.

Look us up on social media for updates on the event, our fabulous prizes and other contests that will be promoted from now through the event!

The first 300 pre-registered floaters will receive a goody bag that includes the official commemorative and limited edition "40 Floatin' Years!" T-shirt, coozie and waterproof lanyard plus cool swag from our wonderful sponsors!
