Event: 2016 Kingston Kayak Festival
Date: Saturday, June 11th
Location: Kingston Point Beach
Interested in kayaking but never had a chance to try it? Not sure what kind of kayak you want? Already have a kayak but thinking about upgrading? This is the event for you! Kenco and Kingston Parks and Recreation have joined forces to present to you the Kingston Kayak Festival. Just a $10 donation (which supports City of Kingston Environmental Education programs) for a full day of fun!
Kayak experts from Kenco and reps from kayak companies will be on hand to guide you to your perfect kayak. Try different types of kayaks right on the Hudson River, so you can really get a feel for what makes each kayak different.
Plus, try out the latest craze: stand up paddleboards. Kenco will be offering great discounts and show specials on kayaks, paddleboards, canoes, racks and accessories.
Join Kingston's Mayor Steve Noble, or KC from Kingston Parks and Rec, on a guided kayak tour. Kayaks, paddles, PFDs will be provided. There will also be various clinics, lessons and demonstrations. Test paddle kayaks from Wilderness Systems, Dagger, Perception, Hurricane, NuCanoe, Jackson and more. Members from ADK will also be leading a longer tour for more experienced paddlers (for the long tour, please bring your own, 13' or longer, dual bulkhead kayak).
