The U.S. Whitewater Center is holding free open water swim sessions on the Catawba River every Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. The course is approximately 200 meters in length and is intended for people who know how to swim. There will be no lifeguard on duty, and participants must sign a waiver and wear a brightly colored swim cap (available for purchase at the Outfitter’s Store.) Whitewater River Jam concert series takes place Friday evenings too, so come and enjoy both. They’re both free. Parking is $5. Food and drink are sold on site. No outside food or drink are allowed.
