Aug 19; Annual Floatzilla in Quad Cities. Floats, food, live music, tee shirts, world record attempt for largest flotilla of kayaks & canoes; http://www.floatzilla.org/
Join a “few” of your paddling friends for this annual attempt to set a new world record for largest flotilla of kayaks & canoes. This year, they will also be shooting for the world record of the largest simultaneous kayak launch.
Win or lose, it’s a great kayak/canoe event on the Mississippi River in the Quad Cities, with a variety of float trips, food, live music, tee shirts, and that amazing logo.
Participants can choose from one of 5 launch locations to paddle down or across the Mississippi, ending at Lake Potter in Rock Island, IL. Everyone meets to gather into a flotilla for a picture to try for the world record for largest flotilla of kayaks and canoes.
Live music and food trucks are planned at the packet pick up at Floatzilla Fest at Credit Island in Davenport, IA on Aug 18 and at Lake Potter on Aug 19.
