The 32nd Annual Salmon River Jet Boat Races once again thrilled a large crowd that packed the shores in and around Riggins last weekend.

Pictured are some of the approximately 1,500 who lined the area immediately south of Time Zone on Saturday afternoon, April 16.

Seven Devils liquor license pulled; Belton seeks solution in time to serve race-day crowds
Depending how things go at a hearing today in Meridian, last month may prove the last of the good ol’ days, back when this town of 400 boasted three different places to buy liquor by the drink. Late last month, Idaho State Police rocked the Riggins bar scene, shutting down liquor sales out of the Seven Devils Steakhouse and Saloon and stopping the Salmon River Inn from moving its liquor sales to a back room at Summerville’s. Seven Devils operator John Belton has kept the restaurant open but stopped selling alcohol after the Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) authorities delivered an order to cease and desist amid an ownership scandal.
