Boat Float & Bash


The Boat Float & Bash all started when the Old Erie Canal Working Group recognized the untapped potential of the Old Erie Canal as a prime location for paddling recreation. With a vision to celebrate the historical significance of the canal while promoting outdoor leisure activities, the group embarked on a journey to create an event that would highlight the canal's scenic beauty and recreational possibilities. Join hundreds of paddlers at this annual paddling event as we fill the Old Erie Canal with colorful kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddleboards! The calm, flat waters of the canal make for a pleasant paddling experience for all levels. Sites along the way include scenic wide-water areas, wildlife, sunken canal boats, and historic aqueducts. 11-5pm: After you Float... get Folky with Live Music, Food, Interactive Demonstrations and Folk Crafts.
