Description

PADDLES TO THE READY! #Floatfest17 is coming!

A two day event proudly instigated by the members of the Murraylands Regional Tourist Association, to encourage you to visit our wonderful Region, and experience life by the River.

Floatfest is a family focused event attempting to break a World record Attempt to gather the largest number of floating kayaks and canoes by “Paddling into the Record Books”. The weekend also encompasses fun for the kids with “Come and try” canoeing, Houseboats open for inspection, lots of fun and activities for all, stalls, markets, regional food, and much, much more.

We want to get as many canoes and kayaks on the Murray River at Mannum as possible on Sunday the 9th of April 2017, and put this region into the Record Books. We are encouraging individuals, families and groups from anywhere in the world to get involved. The weekend will include fun for the family and more!

2017 World Record Attempts:

1) The largest number of floating kayaks/canoes.

2) The largest number of canoes/kayaks lined end to end along the banks of the Murray River.

3) The largest number kayaks/canoes entering the water together at one time.
