On Saturday, January 16, 2016, only the toughest of the toughest will paddle the river and revelers will fill the banks of the Lackawanna River.  A day of exercise and fun, ShiverFest draws the community outdoors during the cold winter to celebrate the valley and the river that runs through it.  The LRCA wants to keep the river running all year long and the best way to do it is by braving the cold and conquering the ice water!

This "Extreme Kayak & Canoe Race" will travel approximately 2.7 miles of the Lackawanna River in Scranton from Parker Street to Sweeney's Beach.  Paddlers who are willing to brave the winter on the River should have their own vessel and wet-suit (strongly recommended).  Launch is High Noon.  Entry fee is $30pp & includes the "Thaw Party".

The Race will be followed by a "Thaw Party" at the Hilton Scranton & Conference Center from 2pm to 5pm.  The paddlers, revelers and the general public are invited to join in!!!  Entry to the "Thaw Party" is $20pp & includes food, beverages, music, education & comradery.
