High river levels have prompted organizers of the Beer Tree River Float to postpone the event.

The float down the Chenango River was scheduled for Saturday. But heavy rain in recent days has raised the water level along the route significantly.

Organizers say the event now is to be held on Saturday, August 11.

The "regatta" is to begin at Chenango Valley State Park in the town of Fenton. Participants are to travel about two miles down the river to Beer Tree Brew Co in Port Crane.

People who have purchased shuttle tickets for the event who will be unable to participate on August 11 may request a refund by emailing their information to info@beertreebrewco.com.

Tickets which already have been printed will be accepted on the new event date unless refunds have been issued.
