Boobz & Tubes event canceled due to unsafe Kern River
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
The eighth annual Boobz & Tubez float down the Kern River has been canceled after event organizers received warnings from several emergency agencies.
The most prominent of those agencies was the Bakersfield Fire Department, which posted this comment on the event's Facebook page:
Event organizers recognized the danger and canceled the event, saying they want to be responsible and set a good example for the community.
The Boobz & Tubes organizers hope to have an alternative event on dry land at some point during the summer.
