The City of Wisner could see another event come to River Park, as it was reported at Monday’s Wisner City Council meeting that a local organization is looking at bringing airboat racing to the city.

Dan Bossow, current president of the Cowtown Classic committee, proposed bringing the event formally known as Thunder on the Loup to River Park.

This event has taken place near Fullerton in past years, but was cancelled in 2017 due to liability issues. Organizers of the event have contacted Bossow and his committee about hosting the event at River Park.

In his presentation to the city council, Bossow said the event calls for around 100-200 entries annually, and would need around 100 camping areas, which could be done at River Park.
