Payette River Games 

Friday-Sunday, June 20-22

Organizers of the Payette River Games are launching the second year of the event with a theme in mind: inspiration. The PRG takes over Kelly's Whitewater Park in Cascade, bringing more than 375 athletes from all over the world to compete in kayak freestyle events, boater cross and stand-up paddleboard races.

The games offer one of the largest purses in river games history, with a total of $50,000 for paddlers and a world-record $50,000 for stand-up paddleboarders, with equal purses for men and women competitors. If that's not inspiration enough, watch for Derek Rabelo, a blind surfer from Brazil who will compete in river surfing events.

The PRG goes beyond kayaking and paddling for sponsored athletes, too. Anyone can compete in other events including fishing, a dog-fetch competition, disc golf, beach volleyball, bocce ball, horseshoes and more. Last year, the inaugural PRG drew a crowd of around 14,000 spectators.
