When I first started at WROK in 1983, one of the first of many really cool events that I was introduced to was the WROK/WZOK Anything That Floats Rock River Raft Race. Hundreds and hundreds of people participated, and thousands more lined the banks of the Rock River to cheer them on. After a good long run, our race was retired. Last year, it returned to much acclaim.

And this year, the Rock River Anything That Floats Race is back for Round 2 on August 20th, with a rain date of August 27th.

It’s not just a race, an engineering challenge or a team-building adventure! It’ll be all those things and more: an action-packed summer day with tens of thousands of spectators lining the Rock River. Put your best paddle forward! Register today!

I mentioned earlier that “back in the day” our radio stations had all kinds of fun with the raft race. Take a look back to race day 1991:
