RENO, Nev. (AP) - Organizers of the Reno River Festival are moving the event to mid-June in hopes the weather will be more cooperative.

The three-day festival takes place at Reno's downtown whitewater park on the Truckee River.

It previously was held in May.

But May's weather is often fickle in northern Nevada, and organizers hope holding the event a month later will boost participation.

This year's event is slated for June 15-17.

Former world champion kayaker Ruth Gordon-Ebens has been named
festival director. Gordon-Ebens is a three-time world freestyle kayaking medalist and a former Reno River Festival winner.

This year's festival will also include two additions, a splash dog competition and "The Biggest Little Dog Jog."
