Chill Afternoon Float Combo

Floating the Deschutes River in Bend is such a popular way to escape the summer heat. You can make that float trip even better by taking some time to explore downtown. Maybe enjoy a bite at J-DUB and/or get a cold treat from Bonta Gelato. The trick is being able to plan your float around Munch & Music. After your float, you can hop out in Drake Park and enjoy a variety of choices from the various food trucks while enjoying some great music in a fun community setting. Don’t forget to bring a towel!
