They haven't announced the opening date of the Boise River Float yet, but they have made this important announcement about floating the river.

"Float the River Boise" is a Facebook page operated by Ada County and they've made an important announcement about floating the river. The Facebook post stated, "With the Boise River cranked up to 1,800 cfs today and cooler temps in the forecast, now is NOT a good time to float the Boise River. Please check back in a few weeks when we'll begin posting regular updates on Barber Park and the official 2021 Boise River Float Season!"

The good news is that the 2021 Boise River Float season will happen, we just don't have an opening date quite yet. Last year, it was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic but still opened on July 1st to the public so that Treasure Valley residents were able to enjoy one of the greatest traditions or pastimes (whatever you'd like to call it) that this beautiful area has to offer.

Something to keep in mind, however, is that once summer time comes around, it becomes increasingly more and more difficult to purchase your own float, locally in stores or even on Amazon. There's also quite a difference between backyard pool floats and the sturdier floats that can handle the more aggressive river terrain. Here's a list of five inflatables you might like to purchase if you want to float the river in style, though folks have been known to fill up an air mattress and float it down the river, so do what works for you! And keep checking back because we'll certainly post the announcement once we know the opening date.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest.
