Where Art Builds Community
Family Fun Day featuring introductory kayaking classes. Will be cancelled in event of inclement weather

Join ArtsRevive and the Autauga Creek Improvement Committee as they bring River Kids to Selma. Introductory classes in kayaking will be hosted at 11,12 and 1 Saturday April 7th. To register your child, be at ArtsRevive at 10 to get your time and your slot! Classes are free. Life jackets are provided. Children must be 8 or older with legal guardian present.

Please wear clothes that you do not mind getting wet. It is recommended to wear shoes that will not come off in the water. Old tennis shoes work well. Also think about bringing sunscreen, change of clothes and a towel.

While there, enjoy the  Rockin' Rib-off - KCBS Backyard Event , see local art at  1st Morning Art Walk  stops, watch  Charlie Tin Man Lucas  paint installation art, and visit the WaterWays exhibit before it closes. We also have planned loads of children's activities, including art stations and a scavenger hunt. What a busy day in downtown Selma!

River Kids is a project sponsored by the Alabama Scenic River Trails! Let’s work to get a chapter here and get kids (and adults!) out on the water.

In case of inclement weather event will be cancelled. Arts Revive is watching the weather forecast for Saturday. We will decide Friday afternoon if the kayaking lessons and the arts activities will happen. Currently rain is predicted at 100% with 10-15 mph winds. Please watch FaceBook for more information.


Additional Events this week
Thursday April 5 6:00-7:30 Old Depot Museum

The Alabama and Tombigbee rivers once provided the only reliable transportation between the rich cotton producing farms of the Black Belt and the Port of Mobile. Simple rafts gave way to steam driven craft in the early 1830’s. By the end of the 19th century these riverboats were floating palaces able to transport thousands of bales of cotton as well as passengers in comfort.

The colorful men who owned and operated these boats will be discussed as well as some horrific tragedies which took hundreds of lives. By the early 20th century new competition in the field of transportation would lead to the end of the colorful era of steamboats on Alabama’s rivers.
April 8 Last chance to visit the exhibit!
Sunday 1:00-3:00
