Loose on the Neuse is back!!


Sound Rivers is proud to team up with Orvis Raleigh, Neuse River Outfitters and Heyday Brewing for this epic river clean-up and afterparty on Aug. 6.

Check in is at 9 a.m. at Riverbend Park. Participants will then be shuttled to their kayaks or, if you choose to clean up by land, to Horseshoe Park (the greenway clean-up is 1.5 miles from Horseshoe Park to Riverbend Park). If you’re on the water, rafts with water and beverages will be staged along the paddle.

After the clean-up, everyone’s invited down the street to Heyday Brewing (5301 Tin Roof Way, Raleigh, NC 27616) from 2 to 4 p.m. to celebrate. Loose on the Neuse logo T-shirts, pint glasses and stickers will be given out to all participants, and prizes will be awarded for “Best Instagram Photo” of the clean-up, “Most Interesting Piece of Trash” and the “Trash Monster Prize,” to the dirtiest and most-dedicated litter terminator. Great items will be raffled off ($5 for eight tickets, $20 for 16, or $20 for 30 tickets.

And 15% of proceeds from total sales will go to Sound Rivers, as well as raffle ticket proceeds.

It’s lining up to be a great event! Come on out and join Sound Rivers staff and board members for a great cause and a great time!
