Paddle and Pint

Paddle and Pint on the Mississippi River!
RSVP by clicking “Going” to this event.

We will start at Tioga Beach and paddle through Little and Big Jay Gould lakes then get back on the river to the Pokegama Dam.

HOW IT WORKS: Participants will drop their kayak, canoe, or SUP off at Tioga Beach where a City staff will keep them safe while you drive to Pokegama Dam to park your car. The Hotel Rapids party bus will shuttle you back to Tioga Beach where the paddle will begin at 9:00 am. When you reach the dam, load your boat on your vehicle.

BRING YOUR FRIENDS because when we end our paddle at Pokegama Dam, we can all jump in our cars and drive to Bear Ridge Pizza in Cohasset (only a half mile to the west) for beer, food, and fun conversation.
The event is free and there will be a raffle to win various prizes at Bear Ridge Pizza.
A free waterproof phone case will be given to participants before we begin. We will have safety boats along the route to help as needed.
Bring your own Personal Flotation Device.
