The Great Trent River Raft Race is back AGAIN on Saturday, June 22 at Union Point Park. The revival of the race in 2018, after a 20 year or so hiatus, was a huge success! We look forward to this being a signature event for New Bern for years to come. The race takes hundreds of hours of planning plus hundreds of volunteers to make it happen. One of the most important components of an event of this size is, of course, our sponsors. One of our Second Mate Sponsors, and also the printer of our popular race hats and t-shirts, is Bender Apparel.
