Our 7th Annual Paddlefest was held Saturday, August 5 at Fireman's Beach on a beautiful foggy morning. As the 131-record number of kayakers got on their way for the Dice Run and the Race, the skies cleared and it was a beautiful day.
We are thankful to all who participated, our dedicated volunteers, and a big round of applause to Silver Shores, our Event Sponsor, all our generous sponsors, dock owners, and all the Conneaut Lake community members and businesses who helped our effort.
Paddlefest is one of the Conneaut Lake Area Historical Society's fundraisers that help us to fulfill our mission of preserving and sharing our rich area history for generations to come.
Save the date for Paddlefest 2024, on the 1st Saturday of August (August 3)!
