NEW: 2014 Miami Springs River Ride

Bring your own kayak, canoe, or paddle boat and ride down the Miami River as we bring back the River as part of the River Cities Festival.

NO POWERBOATS!

Unload your kayak, canoe, or paddle boat (NO POWERBOATS!) near the cat walk across from the dog park on Royal Poinciana Boulevard. You can park your car or truck at the dog park parking.

At noon, we'll take a leisure paddle along the Miami Canal. Along the way we'll stop to take pictures, wave at passersby and view Miami Springs and Hialeah from a different perspective.

ROUTE:
Starting near the catwalk / old boat ramp, the floatilla will continue east towards the East Drive / East 4th Avenue Bridge. We'll do a u-turn and return back to catwalk / boat ramp near the dog park.

BEST SPECTATOR VIEWING AREA:
- Catwalk
- Pedestrian bridge on Canal Street

NOTICE:

Every participant must bring their own kayak, canoe, or paddle boat. No powerboats. Everyone must also bring their own life jacket. Each participant is responsible for his / her own safety.

This is a public waterway and the festival and the city are not responsible for your safety.

SUBJECT TO CHANGE:
The date / time of the River Ride is subject to change without notice. Please check back as we get closer to the date.

RSVP on Facebook today.
