Celebrate the Rapp! An ACA Paddle Green Event
Saturday, June 9th, join the American Canoe Association (ACA) in celebrating the Rappahannock River at the Riverfront Park in downtown Fredericksburg.
With a day full of activities for the entire family, you can volunteer at cleanups to help make our river a better place to paddle; sign up for stand up paddleboard, kayak, or canoe instruction; tube down the Rappahannock's best rapids; take an interpretive canoe trip lead by a local National Park Service Historian; and so much more! There will be a moon bounce on-site and backyard games with REI of Richmond.
Join us in the evening for live music from local Rock n' Roll band Wave on Wave and a screening of the Reel Paddling Film Festival World Tour under the stars! Beer from New Belgium Brewery will be sold in the evening.
A full schedule of the day's events and registration can be found online. All funds go towards the ACA's clean water initiatives.
