2013 marks the 70th anniversary of the White River Water
Carnival. This year's carnival will bring back some old traditions like the putt-putt tournament, the catfish cook-off, and the ballroom dance competition while including newer festivities like Art in the Park, the River City Cruisers car show, the Bone Collector wing-eating contest, the Kids' Zone, fireworks, and the wildly popular Afterglow 5k and dance party, which takes place after the festival (That's right, it's a night run!). The White River Water Carnival is a family-friendly event that everyone is sure to enjoy!
Make sure and visit the Batesville Chamber of Commerce to get a free water gun that can be used to “soak” the floats in the “wet zone” during the festival parade. Visit www.MyBatesville.org
