Batteau Festival


Celebrate the 18th-century river batteaux by sending a fleet of replica flat-bottom cargo boats on a week-long trek down the James River from Lynchburg to Richmond. The pre-festival party on Friday in Lynchburg features a parade and live entertainment. The boats launch Saturday at Percivals Island in Lynchburg at 11 a.m.
