BatteauLynchburg Launch

2016 Batteau Festival off to a Great Start in Lynchburg!

The 31st annual James River Batteau Festival kicked off this ¬†morning in Lynchburg at Percival’s Island. The weather was perfect after a couple of nights of bad weather locally with some people having power outages.

Jeff Taylor announced the batteaux when they left the island starting at 11:00 am.

The boats looked great and everyone was having a great time.

Along the entrance to the Island many vendors had interesting booths and great food vendors in the parking area. This was a great start to the Batteau Festival in Lynchburg.
