Paddlepalooza 2012: Your Next Adventure Awaits

Posted by – Shawn Keenan, Water Resources Coordinator

Are you signed-up for Paddlepalooza 2012?  Paddle-pa-what’s-a … What’s that?

Well, it’s the annual canoe/kayak race and adventure river paddle on the Clinton River.  The event is only one month away!   You don’t want to miss it.

Participants will begin launching their watercraft from the banks of Riverside Park in Downtown Auburn Hills on Saturday, June 2nd at 8:00 a.m.   More than 100 people gathered at last year’s event and we anticipate even more will participate this year.   The fun event is jointly sponsored by the cities of Rochester Hills and Auburn Hills.

This could be you!

Prizes will be awarded for each race class and each participant will receive lunch and an event t-shirt.  Pre-registration is recommended; there is a $20 per person entry fee.
