Big Weekend in Connecticut for Whitewater Events

Willimantic Whitewater Festival on Saturday

They are building a whitewater park and already have a festival going on the site with a kicker ramp being built

The site is a stretch of river that has few low head dams on it, which will be (one by one) turned into whitewater features. It's worth checking this out to show your support for their efforts.

Covered Bridge Slalom on Sunday

This open boat and closed boat slalom race has been going on for what seems like forever. Many top paddlers have started their racing careers with this race. For more information check out this link
or ask Alden Bird what he thinks about the event
