PORTLAND -- Hundreds of people were expected for the 'Big Float' down the Willamette River Sunday.

"People of all ages will enjoy a one-hour river cruise down the Willamette in the 'float-worthy apparatus' of their choice," according to the event website.

The Big Float is intended to celebrate the river as a recreational site and change public perception that it is unsafe for swimming.

The event is free, but participants were encouraged to make a five dollar donation to Willamette Riverkeeper.
