While your friends might be out in the desert, you can spend this Labor Day weekend, on the refreshing water, rafting, doing yoga, dancing to live music under the stars, with yummy, healthy catered meals with a bucket of joyful, like-minded people! Yes, River Vibes is hosting a gentler, greener alternative to Burning Man this coming weekend, Sept. 3 through 5th, on the Stanislaus River.
This action-packed, but serene and energizing weekend is a collaborative offering from local Bay Area businesses, RiverGuidess Journeys and Sunshine Yoga & Rafting Adventures. The weekend will feature guided rafting (Class I-II section of the river, great for novice and experienced alike); yoga; live music; fire circles; healthy and delicious catered meals; EXCLUSIVE use of an indescribably green ‘n gorgeous riverside camping resort; contact improv; and so much more. There will even be fire spinners and pyrotechnics down by the river at night!
