We are moving the Firecracker Race date back to where it all started, close to Independence Day. The Firecracker Race will again be held on the Mississippi River on Saturday July 6, 2024. Just as last year, paddlers will race on a 15 mile downriver course from Grafton access to the Alton riverfront (see map below). The race will end at the Alton marina. After the race come to the Old Bakery Beer Company within walking distance or a short drive for a free meal on us. There we will have the award ceremony and raffle starting at 3:30. There will be a cash bar for drinks. Those that cannot attend the dinner and ceremony afterwards are offered a race t-shirt from us. Those that attend the dinner are offered a race t-shirt for an additional $15.
