More than 120 people converged on Knights Ferry on Sunday, July 1 for the 96.7 co-sponsored ‘Rock on the River’ event to enjoy the rapids of the Stanislaus River. The event was co-sponsored by River Journey Adventures and the Institute of Technology (IOT) of Modesto and featured water games, a hot dog eating contest and various fun activities once the rafters reached the Orange Blossom Recreation Center. The IOT culinary program donated food and staff to provide a free lunch for the first 100 rafters to reach the end point at Orange Blossom. It was a day of laughter, good times, and good, clean fun that only cost $20 per person. Though not officially a holiday event, for many it was a good way to kick start the Fourth of July festivities. The evening also included the annual fireworks display at Woodward Reservoir, off 26-Mile Road.
