RACINE — The annual Kevin’s Lazy River Adventure, scheduled for July 27, 2013, will be better than ever. Over the last five years, the event has grown to over 100 boats and 150 participants.
Boats will put in at John Slack Park in Racine and take out at Dartmont Park in Ashford. The Big Coal River Branch of the Coal River Group will have their annual free West Virginia Picnic at the end of the float at the Dartmont Park.
The 10-mile float is a fantastic community outing, and we hope you will consider being a part of this great day.
Canoes and kayaks will be available to rent from Coal River Kayak. To reserve a boat for the float, call 304-722-3055.
The Coal River Group is a nonprofit organization formed in 2004 to preserve history, develop tourism and encourage recreation in the Coal River Watershed. Our continuing goal as you can see is to “Bring Life Back to the Coal Rivers.”
