Calling all paddlers! Everyone is invited to the 2022 GREAT Float - a celebration of the Great Miami River. Join us on a 5-mile paddle from West Carrollton to Miamisburg with over 100 participants in canoes, kayaks, and other human-powered craft.
The GREAT Float is scheduled for Thursday, July 14 from 2 to 5 pm. Paddlers will also enjoy an after-party in downtown Miamisburg.
Registration is required. Participants can rent a kayak, paddle and life jacket for $50, or bring your own kayak or canoe for $10. Transportation is included. Deadline for registration is July 8th.
Paddlers will park in downtown Miamisburg, ride a shuttle bus to Miami Bend Park in West Carrollton, and float down the Great Miami River to Miamisburg. Adventures on the Great Miami will supply the rental equipment.
The after-party features a Taste of Miamisburg with local restaurants including TJ Chumps, Bennett's Publical, Bullwinkle's, and Ron's Pizza. Paddlers are also invited to enjoy the Miamisburg DORA.
Registration deadline is July 8th.
Hosted by the Great Miami Riverway and the cities of West Carrollton and Miamisburg, the event is sponsored by altafiber (previously known as Cincinnati Bell).
