JUNE 29-30 | Rock Falls

The Rock Falls River Chase will make waves again this year on the Rock River from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 29-30 at Seward Park in Rock Falls. Food and kids' activities available.

Not for the faint of heart

The Illinois Marine Racing Club conducts the races that are sanctioned by the American Power Boat Association. The sport is not for the faint of heart. 

Check out something you don't see anywhere else in the area. Boats that range from 8' to 13' depending on race category with drivers as young as 9 years old on up to drivers in their 70s. The boat speeds range from 35 mph to 80 mph. Talk about fast and they are only inches from the water!

There will be food and snack vendors set up at the park along with bounce houses, fire truck rides, and more.  Come enjoy time at our well-shaded park and enjoy a day along the river.

Admission is free.
