Gasquet Raft Race on the Smith River in Del Norte County, California.
Come float (in costumes!) down the Smith River at the 54th annual Gasquet Raft Race at the Forks in Gasquet. Every July, people break out their favorite floaties — think rafts, kayaks, giant swans, and even air mattresses — to drift down the sparkling Smith River. Costumes and raft decor is strongly encouraged. No registration is needed this year — just float!
