Join us for a completely free 60-minute (time varies depending on water level and your canoe steering ability) paddling trip down the Sugar River. We provide your choice of canoe or kayak (based on availability), life jackets, and paddles. Thank you to event sponsor Rutabaga Paddle Sports for donating a fleet of canoes for the event! Paddling trips will depart from Paoli Park at 9:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 3:00 pm. Trips fill up quickly, so please arrive at the park in advance to register. If paddling isn’t your thing, we still have other activities that you may enjoy!
This year’s food, beverages (including beer!) and cake will be served at The Hop Garden across the street from Paoli Park. Pizza will be provided by Sugar River Pizza Company of Belleville, drinks from Tuvalu Coffeehouse & Gallery of Verona, along with other fixings to complete the meal. Lunch will be provided free of charge for USRWA members, and pizza will be sold for $2.50/slice for non-members. Vegetarian options will be available.
