Pictured: 2018 Ridgway RiverFest Emcee John Clark (also Ridgway's Mayor) stands on an unusual island in the Uncompahgre River with a flock of rubber duckies. Due to this year's drought, the river has historically low flows, which means some river activities aren't possible but festival events like the Junk of the Unc will go on, along with new events like an Inflatables race (everyone bring an inner tube!) and a rubber ducky race.
