The first Paddle Antrim Festival will be on September 18 & 19, 2015. The Paddle Antrim Festival includes a non-competitive two-day sea kayak paddle through Northern Michigan’ Chain of Lakes. The first day begins in Ellsworth continuing through Central Lake to Bellaire, meandering through numerous small lakes. The second day will continue from Bellaire, ending in Elk Rapids, passing through Torch Lake, Michigan’s longest inland lake. This 40+ mile paddle event highlights the wonderful natural resources-based activities available in Northern Michigan.
Along the route, local communities including Ellsworth, Central Lake, Bellaire, and Elk Rapids will host other events, illustrating what wonderful opportunities the communities have to offer. The launch site is from the Ellsworth River Park in Ellsworth. Registration is required for the paddle.
