Paddler's Picnic at Oleta River State Park

Come and join the fun! 

The Multi-Club Paddlers Picnic is a long standing South Florida tradition bringing paddlers from all over the area for a day of paddling, sharing, showing off their boats, eat too much, talk too much and have a great time on the water!

This year, the event is hosted by The Paddle House, Blue Moon Outdoor Center, Race South Florida, Rabbit Mountain and PUFF Power Dragon Boat Team.  All paddlers, interested parties and clubs are welcome.  Registration is required.  No promises but maybe we can break a World record for a raft-up? 

Paddleboards, SUP, kayaks, canoes, dragon boats...  all are welcome This is not a fundraising event, the only cost is for food if you want to participate in the BBQ.  Vegetarians need not worry; we have treats for you too!
