VIDEO: Yampa River Festival makes waves in Steamboat

Rafters try their hand at surfing Charlie's Hole on the Yampa River by Bud Werner Memorial Library for the raft race and rodeo in Steamboat Springs on Saturday. Yampa River Festival continues Sunday with the kayak slalom race at noon.

Since 1981, visitors and locals have been gathering at the river in downtown Steamboat Springs for the annual Yampa River Festival, hosted by Friends of the Yampa.

Here’s a video created by Christina Grant featuring some of Saturday’s action. The festival continues today.
