MOBILE, Alabama (WALA) – On the banks of the beautiful Dog River, music lovers and river stewards have come together for a time of fun and a common goal this weekend.
“Keep the river clean,” said Linda Stefan.
The Mudbottom Revival Music Festival was hosted by Dog River Clearwater Revival, the only organization dedicated solely to the well-being of one of the state’s largest urban watersheds.
“So getting these people out and supporting this cause is how we are able to do what we have been commissioned to do and our mission is to improve water quality and access to mobile urban water. Said Debi Foster, Executive Director of Dog River Clearwater Revival.
This year the setup was very different because of COVID-19.
Most of the spectators were on the water watching boats, kayaks, canoes and paddleboards.
“The mobile has arrived. They love this river and it’s just obvious. You can see… how much they love it, ”said Marbury Buckhaults.
Attendees got a 360-degree view of the show, programming that included Mobile native Will Kimbrough.
“Playing Dog River this time of year… It’s just one of the most beautiful places in the world. Raising money to clean it up and keep it clean for future generations and also for the present moment where we can be here and enjoy it .. is fantastic, ”Kimbrough said.
“The weather was nice, the group was great and people all care about the river.”
This year’s event was a huge success.
Over $ 30,000 has been raised to protect and improve the water quality of Dog River.
