Bridge Day is the largest extreme sports event in the world and is held on the third Saturday in October every year in Fayetteville. Hundreds of BASE jumpers and nearly 200,000 spectators are expected to attend this year's Bridge Day. We will be celebrating 28 years! The New River Gorge Bridge, 876' tall and the world's second longest single arch bridge, serves as the launch point for six hours (9am-3pm EST) of safe, legal BASE jumps.
