For those spending the Fourth of July weekend in Central Oregon, 10 Barrel Brewing host Tubeapalooza on Saturday, July 2. Tubeapalooza will be an afternoon inner tube race down the Deschutes River in downtown Bend, Oregon.
Beginning at 10 Barrel’s Pub, the four-person team relay race will begin on foot and will then run to the input at Miller’s Landing and float the Deschutes River to Drake Park. Once there the team will run back to 10 Barrel for a celebratory block party. Registration is $40 per team that includes a custom Tubeapalooza inner tube for each racer.
When the racers return to 10 Barrel there will be a block party for both racers and the general public that will feature live music from American rock band, Andy Frasco and the U.N., beer, food, games, an inflatable water slide and race awards. Registration is required to participate in the race. The block party is free and open to the public.
