Hidalgo Falls River Festival
Saturday, April 14, 2018, 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM
The 17th annual Hidalgo Falls River Festival will be held on Saturday, April 14 at the TRPA Hidalgo Falls property on the Brazos River near Navasota. The festival is the year’s major fund-raising event to support our efforts to provide paddlers’ access to the rapid. Paddlers, their families, and friends can explore the property, check out the tidepool-like river features, play in the rapid, have relaxing floats up and down the river, and enjoy camping for the weekend. We ask that people contribute $10/person to help cover expenses (e.g., toilets, electricity). Our bathhouse, equipped with showers, flush toilets, and lavatories, has made camping appealing to families.
We have electricity for those with extension cords, but you will need to bring your own food and drinks. Camping is available only at the lower campground. For a map of the property, click on the Hidalgo Falls website. People will start arriving on Friday afternoon, so someone should be able to let you in the locked gate if you are not currently certified to access the property. (Opportunities to join TRPA and become certified to use the property will be available throughout the weekend.)
