Celebrate the Rappahannock
You can do that all day on Saturday as the American Canoe Association hosts the kickoff of its Paddle Green pilot program here at Riverfront Park on Sophia Street. Called Celebrate the Rapp, there are river cleanup events, paddling instruction, paddling tours, kids’ games, food, beer (after the paddling is done) and lots of events, beginning at 9 a.m. and running through 10:30 p.m. Evening events include live music and a film festival. Click here for the full schedule. See my story later this week for more details.
