What goes on?
The races are a time for local paddlers to come together and test their skills against one another, as well as themselves. But, they are more than that. They are also an opportunity to come together as a paddling community and celebrate our local rivers. We also feature a raffle, silent auction, food, live entertainment, awards banquet, environmental education, and more. All of this presented in a family friendly environment.
