Hero USA: Paddle in the City

Join HERO USA and the American Kayak Association for your very own riverfront adventure! ACA certified instructors will be conducting Level 1 safety education courses designed to get even the most inexperienced person on the water. Then take in the sights & sounds of the festival enjoying a half hour paddle on the beautifully restored Scioto River. Activity fee proceeds support HERO USA’s community-based youth outdoor education programs.
On-site registration is available on a first come, first serve basis. This is a popular activity that tends to sell out, so reserve your space early!
