Location: Mayor Charlie Hales Office – City Hall Start time: 7am Details: Mayor Charlie Hales and Willie Levenson, Ringleader of Human Access Project, to be the first people to register online for the fifth anniversary of The Big Float The Big Float sets sail again this summer in 5th annual voyage In the early afternoon of Sunday, July 26, a few thousand people will climb into inner tubes and other human-powered watercraft and set sail down the mighty Willamette River in downtown Portland for the fifth annual event known as The Big Float. The goal is to encourage locals to “get into their river” now that it is safe for swimming, and to give the Willamette River a collective hug after years of mistreatment and misunderstanding, according to Willie Levenson, ringleader of Human Access Project. The Big Float is open to all ages and all floaters must wear a life jacket (it’s a safe cruise, not a race). Registration cost is $5 until July 19 and $10 after (discounted pricing for kids.)Mayor Charlie Hales will participate again this year, and will serve as grand marshal for 2015. “The city has made great strides in cleaning up the Willamette River, and people need to know that the river now is safe for swimming and recreation,” Hales said. “This is a new era for the river of our city and there is no better way to celebrate than to grab a tube and join in The Big Float flotilla. I can’t wait.” The Big Float is a fundraiser for the Human Access Project, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to improve human access to the river, inspire Portlanders to embrace their river, and facilitate stewardship of the Willamette River and Watershed.
