This is the last of three parts about Carding’s annual Amnicolist River Race, a contest of homemade rafts down the frigid waters of the Corvus River.
So far, we’ve been introduced to some of the rafting teams and their assortment of whimsical craft. We’ve also learned about the current state of angst among some of the town’s teenagers.
If you need to catch up, part one is here and the stuff in the middle is here.
This week, we get to watch the race and congratulate the winners.
