Adirondack Paddlefest 2013 Brings Thousands to Old Forge This Weekend!

The Adirondack Paddlefest attracts seasoned veterans as well as paddling newcomers to the Old Forge area.  Held at the Old Forge Public Beach, behind the Visitors’ Center, the weekend event is the perfect opportunity to see over 1,000 canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards (SUP) on the water.  The various events include clinics with industry representatives as well as a chance to meet other paddling enthusiasts. There is also plenty of time between the scheduled events to take in the area restaurants or just enjoy the scenery.

Last year more than 3,000 festival goers attended this event.  There will be many food vendors and live music to entertain the crowd.
