Live the Good Life for Less & Never Miss a Deal

The Big Float on the Arkansas River

The Big Float is a river float and beach party on the Arkansas River in downtown Wichita. The goal of the Big Float is to build support for improving river access and creating a river habitat for Wichitans.  Because this is a fundraiser to fund our River’s water quality improvements and education opportunities, refunds are not available.  The event will be rescheduled in the event of uncooperative weather.
