If you’re a fan of the outdoors, then make plans to visit Roanoke’s annual Go Festival taking place Friday, October 14th through Sunday, October 16th at River’s Edge Sports Complex. This event, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, showcases vendors and exhibitionists who specialize in outdoor recreation.

Visitors may choose from a variety of demonstrations and programs including rappelling, BMX bike shows, lumberjack demos, and a dock-jumping dog show where canine contestants compete to see which one can jump the farthest.

For those who truly want a front seat to this year’s activities, check out the all new Camp Zone sponsored by GO RVing. This brand new addition will feature lounge tents with couches, fire pits, hammocks, charging stations, and more! Free tent camping is available on a first come, first serve basis. RV camping is also available, but requires a reservation.
