Float, relax, repeat
Floating on Elkhorn Creek is from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Participants may float down the creek as many times as they wish. The float includes one entry point with a “lunchtime” exit point of approximately a 1.5-hour float and a longer exit point of up to a 4-hour float. A wagon will be available for participants at the final exit point to ride back to the point of entry. Float time will depend on the weather prior to the event as float times are determined by the slowest waterflow of Elkhorn Creek.
The Elkhorn Creek Float Fest is coordinated by Georgetown/Scott County Tourism and Georgetown-Scott County Parks & Recreation. Rain date: Saturday, August 14. The Elkhorn Creek Float Fest is a family-friendly event, but independent swimmers ONLY are encouraged on the creek. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Pre-registration is available here until Thursday, August 5.
