|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every month that begins at 8:00 am on day Fourth of the month, repeating until September 23, 2023
Join us for a relaxing 8.1 or 16.2 mile float on the Levisa Fork River in Prestonsburg & Paintsville. Beginning at 8:00 a.m., participants can drop their watercraft off at River Park behind Billy Ray’s Restaurant, 101 N. Front Ave., Prestonsburg, KY 41653. Paddlefest participants then head to the Combs Airport to register and park your vehicle. This is where all will register and receive wristbands to participate in the paddle and lunch. Tickets, $15, include not only a fun paddle with old and new friends, but also offers a shuttle and catered lunch. Shuttles will be provided to transport you to the starting point at River Park and back from the water tower for those participating in the 16 mile paddle.
Following the river paddle, a delicious catered lunch will be served at the airport. From there, participants can enjoy the convenience of grabbing their watercraft and vehicle when finished. Bring your own kayak or rent one, whatever floats your boat!
Watercraft rentals are available from Profitness (606-886-8604) or Jenny Wiley State Resort Park (606-889-1790). Based on availability.
