61st Annual White River Water Carnival Underway

August 6, 2004 -- Posted at: 10:45p.m. CDT

BATESVILLE, AR - The beginnings of the White River Water Carnival were national boat races and beauty pageants. Years later, the races are gone, and food, fun and family activities have been added.

This year, freedom and family members who have made sacrifices took center stage on Friday night. A Salute to Our Troops dedication was held. Mike Low, whose daughter, Sarah Low, died when American Airlines Flight #11 crashed into the World Trade Center, was the featured speaker.

Another huge attraction is the chance to win 1 of 5 Dinner for Two tickets to dine with NASCAR driver Mark Martin. The final auction for those chances will be held August 7th at 6:30pm.
