This weekend one of the largest paddlesports events (and more) on the East Coast takes place at James Island County Park in Charleston… and it’s a really great time.
Whether you’re a devoted outdoor sporting enthusiast or just beginner, there’s something for you at this really fun and helpful three-day festival. Explore canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, rock climbing, slacklining, mountain biking, archery and even disc golf at the 25th Annual East Coast Paddleports & Outdoor Festival.
There will be all sorts of hand-on workshops and, best of all, the chance to get out on the water on just about any piece of floating equipment being displayed. While packages range up to $155 for the full weekend, for just $10 you can get a “Try It” pass that lets you paddle all day on all the different manufacturers’ kayaks, canoes and paddleboards. It’s a wonderful way to discover a new passion and really try out the equipment before investing the money.
And don’t forget your sunscreen!
