Float-In ScheduledSaturday, July 13 @ 4:00 pm
With high tide scheduled for 3:46 pm on July 13, 2019, this year's Float-In will begin at 4:00 pm with Registration beginning at 3:00 pm. This event is the cornerstone of the annual Nanticoke Riverfest. It is a tradition for some so you are encouraged to come out and make it yours too. The launch site is at First State OMS on Riverside Drive adjacent to southbound Route 13 across from Seaford Ice Plant. Shuttle service will be available from Water Street to the launch site. There is no return-shuttle service for cars left at the launch site. Floaters are encouraged to park downtown and take advantage of the pre-float shuttle service.
All floaters under the age of 16 must wear a life jacket. The Seaford Volunteer Fire Department and Blades Volunteer Fire Company will have divers and boats in the water for safety. A limited number of tubes and lifejackets will be on sale the day of the float-in. The cost of the float-in is $1. The take-out point will be the canoe launch near Water Street. Come join the fun and you can bring your most creative floatation device for this event.
