BACC Requests Volunteers for Afterglow 5k


The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce is requesting volunteers for the 2nd Annual Afterglow 5k, the nighttime glow run that takes place immediately following the fireworks at the annual White River Water Carnival. Volunteer needs include course security, merchandise preparation, and race timing assistance.

“With the Water Carnival just around the corner, volunteer staffing has become very important. We need to fulfill this need as soon as possible to ensure the second Afterglow is even more successful than the first. The entire Water Carnival is directed by volunteer staffing, and there is so much to do before the event, the day of the event, and the next couple of days after. It is necessary to have as many volunteers as possible,” said BACC Membership Director Mandi Curtwright.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Mandi Curtwright at (870) 793-2378 or

The 71st Annual White River Water Carnival will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 13, 2014 at Riverside Park in Batesville. Please be aware that there will be road closures during the race from 9:15 p.m. until 10:15 p.m. throughout the neighborhood surrounding Riverside Park and Batesville Junior High and Batesville High School.
