Ahh, Raft Off. The sister event to the glorious Jobbie Nooner, when thousands of people on boats link up for a day of sunshine, rafting, and lots and lots of drinks. Nicknamed “The Moot,” Muscamoot Bay is located on Lake St. Clair, and it’s the perfect spot for friends with boats to have a great time. When all of the boats link up, it is called “The Gauntlet,” and it is epic as hell. Just make sure you respect the law enforcement out there —they have a long day ahead of them. And don’t drive your boat and drink!

Saturday, 8/13, Event starts at 6 a.m.; Muscamoot Bay;; Event is free.
