Floatzilla 2019 Returns with a Splash!
Have you ever wanted to participate in an attempt to break a world record? Well here is your opportunity!
Floatzilla 2019 will return in its ‘world-record breaking’ glory, this Saturday Aug 17!
Take part in the largest paddlesport festival on the the nation’s greatest river, the Mississippi! Help set a new world record for the Largest Raft of Canoes/Kayaks. Experience the Mississippi River free of commercial barge traffic. All paddle crafts are welcome to participate, but only non-inflatable kayaks and canoes may participate in the World Record attempt.
Join Floatzilla and choose from one of six launch locations across the Quad Cities. For an updated list of launching locations, visit http://www.riveraction.org/node/308.
Don’t have a kayak or canoe? River Action’s Floatzilla outfitters can meet up with you at a launch point with a boat, then wait at Sunset Park to pick it up after you finish paddling. Find the list of outfitters HERE.
Volunteers are needed on Friday and Saturday (Aug 16 and 17) in multiple locations and multiple jobs. All volunteers will receive a Floatzilla volunteer t-shirt and will have the opportunity to attend a pizza party!
Grab those paddles and have some fun!
