‘Radical Reels’ tour returns to Roanoke,VA
Showing of high-adrenaline outdoor adventure films sold out in last year’s Roanoke appearance
ROANOKE, VA. – The 2010 Banff Radical Reels Tour, featuring the wildest high-adrenaline outdoor adventure films, returns to the Roanoke Region Sept. 15 at Jefferson Center.
The film caps off an Outdoor Expo showcasing the region’s many outdoor assets.
Radical Reels is a wildly popular component of Canada’s Banff Mountain Film Festival. This annual film tour captures the most exhilarating footage in skiing, climbing, kayaking, BASE jumping, snowboarding and mountain biking.
Last year’s showing sold out in Roanoke, prompting a larger venue this year.
The film will be shown at 7 p.m. on Sept. 15, with proceeds benefiting the Jefferson Center. The Outdoor Expo will be held that evening from 5-7 p.m. The expo is an opportunity for the community to learn about (and meet) the various outfitters, guides, clubs, and opportunities available to them.
“Radical Reels features some outdoor adventures people only dream of,” says Pete Eshelman, director of outdoor branding for the Roanoke Regional Partnership. “It’s also a great way to bring people together and showcase some of the adventures available right in our backyard as we continue to build an outdoor brand.”
