This Free Family event has been running for 25+ years and is back for another year this coming Saturday. Get creative and your own float OR show up in a canoe, dingy, kayak, or anything else that you think will float! Registration is FREE.
This is a FREE event BUT Pre-Registration is REQUIRED due to being limited by provincial guidelines. Every participant must pre-register.
Check in starts at 1pm – it’s free to float, BUT we will be limited we want to know about you and your ‘boat.’ The race starts at 2pm and participants will float down the Margaree River from Tanner’s Run to Doyle’s bridge. If you’re visiting or unfamiliar with the area, please look for signs between the Dancing Goat and Margaree Co-op. On the day of, you won’t miss us!
As usual, there are two categories: 1) canoes and kayaks; 2) everything else. First, second, and third place prizes will be awarded to the top three fastest canoes and kayaks. Three prizes will also be awarded to floats: Salvador Dali Award (most creative/artistic); Seaworthy Captain’s Award (most seaworthy); Slow Poke Award (the float that doesn’t look like it will float).
This long-running and volunteer-run community event is for all ages! Registration is FREE, but we have a selection of Tees and souvenirs for sale.
