Lotus

LogoHonor your loved ones, celebrate a friendship or commemorate a special event in the most beautiful and memorable way. The Lotus Flower represents eternity, purity and divinity. Watch your flowers, which are made from recycled plastic bottles, float down the Smith River at this unique event and have the chance to win awesome prizes!

Flowers will float down the Smith River on June 23 @ 3pm. 

We will be releasing the flowers into the water behind the Bassett Historic center so you can watch from there or from the bridge just downstream. then you can go down to the next bridge at Bullocks drive and watch from that bridge as we will be capturing the flowers and taking them out of the river there at Smith River Outfitters.
