Get your paddles to the ready because Floatfest 17 is back and ready to kayak/canoe into the world record books.
The event encourages people of all ages and skill levels to hop in a kayak or canoe and enjoy the serenity of the Murray River.
Happening at Murray Bridge’s Sturt Reserve on April 8-9, the event promises a variety of events on and off the water.
This year’s Floatfest will be made particularly memorable as organisers hope to paddle into the Guiness World Book of Records with 2 record attempts.
These include largest number of kayaks lined end to end along the banks of the River Murray; and largest raft of canoes and kayaks on the water.
Murray Bridge’s Floatfest means business with these record attempts, but will have some serious competition from WA competitors when they attempt to break the same records on the same day.
Floatfest Coordinator Jen Whitehorn spoke to Flow FM for more details:
Floatfest will feature a number of exciting activities including a kite festival, Paddle Wheel cruises with Captain Proud, come & try water confidence workshops, Can do 4 kids fundraising, paddle board demonstrations, Kookaburra Homes dash for cash, canoe polo and so much more.
