Newton County, Miss.
The annual Chunky River Raft Race is this weekend, and officials say it will be a fun time for the family.

The annual event was re-started in 2013 after about a decade hiatus.

It will start at 10 a.m. Saturday at Chunky Shoals Fish Camp.

The day will include lots of music and games, and raft, canoe and kayak races. Live music begins at 5 p.m.

There will also be a race to pick up trash along the river.
