On Sunday, August 21, the Outer Harbor will become the site of an enormous flotilla of kayaks and canoes. Buffalo Paddle People is organizing a gathering that will see a tremendous number of personal water crafts that will come together as a free floating mass. The event is a benefit, designed to raise money for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.
Registrants will launch kayaks & canoes from multiple launch points on the Buffalo River and Outer Harbor waterway beginning as early as 8am, 10am officially. We will meet in the Outer Harbor inside the break-wall across from Wilkeson Pointe forming a free float raft beginning at approximately 11:00am. We’ll attempt to create the largest (see rules) free floating mass of kayaks and canoes that Western New York has ever seen!
After the giant flotilla dissipates, all participants are invited to a free afterparty* at RiverWorks. Those who participated in the organized water activity get into the party for no additional cost. The afterparty is also open to people who don’t want to participate in the mass float, but still want to support the cause for a lesser ticket price.
$35 Single float and $65 Tandem float registration available – includes RiverWorks post-party.
$20 Buffalo Float – RiverWorks After Party only admission ticket.
