Pride Paddle #5
June 19 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
PLEASE READ ALL THE WAY TO THE END…
This is an all inclusive, family friendly event geared towards all ages. Everyone is responsible for their own safety & parents are solely responsible for the safety of their children. That being said I’ve had many people join me on the water over the yrs including younger children & even adults that can’t swim, all have successfully survived the adventure & had a blast doing it. =) No kayaking experience necessary for this lil adventure, you just need a desire to have fun on the water.
We will be launching from Interstate Park & paddling to Osceola Landing. This is typically a 3 – 4 hr paddle/float.
For those wanting to carpool we will meet behind Newman’s Bar in N St Paul at 9am & depart promptly at 9:30.
Stragglers are on your own so set your alarms & be on time. We will arrive at Interstate Park at 10:30 & paddles wet at 11am. Note… There is a fee if you do not have a state park permit. Motorcycles are also welcome to join, Taylor’s Falls is a fun lil jaunt on 2 wheels.
For those needing to rent a kayak I highly recommend that you book in advance…
For those bringing your own kayak please post a comment & we can coordinate transport with others who have room, my trk is already fully loaded. I will have a vehicle at Osceola Landing to help transport people with their own boats back to Interstate Park. Masks are a necessity for sharing my shuttle!
Please bring a sandwich or snacks & plenty of water to stay hydrated. SMALL COOLERS ONLY. There are typically several awesome sand bars to stop & mingle, this totally depends on the water level tho. I DO NOT encourage bringing alcoholic beverages on the water, but I’m not your momma either. Please, please be responsible with your drinking as I do not want to do any water rescues.
Invite your friends, family, neighbors, & bring your pup along if they kayak with you as well. Let’s make some awesome memories together. =)
NOTE… I set the time as 9am – 4pm so you can plan from the time you leave the cities until you get back to the cities. We’re only on the water for about 4 hrs. 🌞
