Eight Consecutive Years Winning Pull of the Year
2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019!
Hello to our Fans, Sponsors, Volunteers, and Community:
It is with much thought, many meetings, and great sadness that we have decided to cancel Rumble by the River for 2020.
There were numerous factors that went into our decision, several of which are; a lack of volunteers (a lot of our gracious volunteers are 65 years old or older and have one or more additional risk factors, which have made them reassess their volunteer status for 2020), several of our “regular pullers” have contacted us, saying with their current situation (underemployed or unemployed) they will not be taking their pulling rig out of storage this summer, the uncertainty of what the government is going to do over the next couple of months (as far as future shut-downs go), the concern over the health and safety of our volunteers and visitors, plus many other considerations from our hardworking committee.
Our goal is to put on the very best event that we can; and as a committee, we did not feel that we could do so this year. Each and every one of you deserves our very best; and if we cannot deliver that, we will not compromise. While we work hard behind the scenes, to make our 10th anniversary (now in 2021) a spectacular show; please continue to support our sponsors, visit our website and Facebook pages, and please stay safe and healthy.
Thank you – The Big Bend Celebrations Committee
Thank you to our sponsors, volunteers, vendors, and fans for making 2019 a huge success.
With 2019 being our first attempt at hosting pulls on both Friday and Saturday nights, we were absolutely thrilled with the results. Yes, we need to tweak a few things for next year (and add a few surprises for our 10th anniversary too); but overall we now know the logistics of making this event even better than it has ever been.
The event is presented by the Village of Big Bend Celebrations Committee and will be held on Friday, July 10th and Saturday, July 11th, 2020 at the Big Bend Village Park.
We are now offering "preferred" parking for $5 per vehicle in the park on BOTH evenings.
We will be running FREE shuttle bus service both nights this year, from 4PM-midnight.
Highlights for 2020...
