Fun on the Mississippi

Canoe / Kayak Float & Dragon Boat Races!

fun on the water

FLOAT

Our annual Canoe / Kayak float takes place on Sunday, August 5th at RiverFest in Fort Madison Iowa. But we will be out at area waterways promoting paddlesports all summer long. We put our boats in the water in front of the Fort at 9:00 AM and paddle to the Lee County Conservation Area at Heron Bend. Show up early and expect the float to take between 2 to 3 hours. All participants will need to fill out a waiver and children under 18 will need their parents written permission.

DRAGON BOAT RACES

Returning at last, Dragon Boat Races! This exciting race is sure to give you and your team the thrill you're seeking! Dragon Boat Races will be held on Saturday, August 4th at RiverFest on the River. Teams of 20 will race against each other down the good ol' Mississippi River! Sign your team up today!

SAFETY

Sure, we like to have a good time on the water. But we do it with safety in mind. There are designated safety boats in the water as well as support from DNR and the U.S. Coast Guard. We also ensure all participants must wear a personal flotation device or PFD. If you have always wanted to learn to paddle or just want to have fun on the water with other paddlers, then the RiverFest Canoe / Kayak float is for you. Best of all its FREE, unless of course you need to rent a boat.
