Come roll down the Buffalo River on Saturday, June 16th!! Participants can paddle their traditional canoe, kayak, or stand up paddle board or let their inner “First Mate” come out and create a homemade watercraft. In the “Build Your Own Boat” category there are no restrictions or limitations other than your imagination. Get ready to paddle as the 6 mile canoe’s and kayak’s start from Harlem/Clinton and the “float your boat’s” and 3 mile canoe and kayak’s will start from the Smith Street Pocket Park at the foot of Smith Street. Launch time for both sites is 10am for the 6 mile course and 11am for the 3 mile course. All vessels will end at the DEC Canoe Launch on Ohio Street. Participant check in will begin at 9am at each site. The entry fee is $30 per boat pre-sale ($35 the day of the event) for “Build Your Own” boats and $20 per boat presale ($25 the day of the event) for kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards. There will be awards for each category! There are cash prizes for both “Most Creative Vessel” and “Best Built Vessel” in the “Build Your Own Boat” category.
