3rd Annual Driftless Drift

From the organizers of this fun event:
“The Driftless Drift is a celebration of the beauty of the Upper Iowa River Valley.  It’s a low-impact event that respects and values all things local. Did we mention it’ll be solar powered? There’ll be music. There’ll be food available for purchase. Not to mention, informative and inspiring words from folks doing what they can to encourage tourism in this gorgeous Driftless place. We encourage you to get out and connect with your neighbors in the region, recreate, and relish in nature.”
