Parade of Paddles

PublicEvents Saturday, July 1, 2017 9am-12noon

free 101-500 participants

Voyageur brigade in a paddle parade! Pass through the recreational lock at the Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site, and follow the St. Marys River along the waterfront of Sault Ste. Marie to kick off Canada Day. The parade will converge upstream at the Sault canal on the morning of July 1st, 2017 and lock through en masse at 10:30 am. We are aiming for 150 or more paddlers to join us in celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary! This event is recommended for experienced paddlers, as there will be some areas of current to navigate. Traditional music and activities will be offered to engage visitors who want to watch the parade from the perfect vantage point - the lock wall. Watch for updates on our Facebook and our website.
