Kyle Fest is the biggest freeride wake fest in the Midwest. It's bigger and better than ever with this year being its fifth annual. What makes Kyle Fest so great is the riding conditions and the home-base location of WaterStreet Bar & Grill. The event is a weekend full of boarding, camping and entertainment on the Kaskaskia River, which is endless pure butter. The river is 20 feet deep shore to shore, has lots of turns in it to stay out of the wind and narrow, which means no cross waves going up and down river. Ride all weekend on a never-ending stretch of river with private lake-like conditions. WaterStreet Bar & Grill is located in Evansville, Ill., right on top of the Kaskaskia River.
