We are very excited to share that we are the presenting sponsor for the first-ever Paddle the Canal Festival, hosted by Downtown Huntsville, Inc. If you have an adventurous spirit, enjoy fierce competition, or simply love to kayak, you don’t want to miss this unique event.
Paddle the Canal is a great way to celebrate the beginning of spring in Huntsville’s beautiful downtown. On April 22 and 23, competitors from all over the region will literally paddle the canal at Big Spring International Park. The event offers three different categories: novice, expert and costume (non-timed). You can register as an individual, team of two, or team of four. Children under 18 may participate if they ride with someone 18 or older.
Ready to get paddling? You can get a special early bird price now through February 28—plus a very special discount for Redstone members! When you buy your ticket, use discount code paddle10 to receive a 10% discount on registration, simply for being a Redstone member!
All participants are guaranteed three course runs, plus you’ll receive a t-shirt and access to the private Paddlers Park event area. Bring your own kayak/canoe or rent one for a small fee the day of the event. The top three participants in each category will win a prize! RSVP to their Facebook event to stay in the loop about all of the event details.
Whether you’re an expert with years of experience, a novice with a competitive spirit, or just want to have a fun time in an over-the-top costume, you’ll have a great time at the Paddle the Canal Festival. What better way to enjoy the beauty of Big Spring Park and downtown? Spots are limited, so make sure to sign up today and use code paddle10 to receive your special Redstone discount. Good luck!
