Kayak for free at Riverside Park on North Monroe Ave. on Saturday, June 22!

The City of Grand Rapids is offering free kayaking as part of the Grand River Water Festival, a day long music festival that aims to help educate our community on environmental issues.

Celebrating it's 10th year, the event features booths for nonprofit organizations, food vendors, kids activities, and a beer tent.

Kayak rental is normally $8 for the first hour, and then 6 for each additional hour at Riverside Park.

According to a comment on the Facebook post shared by the City of GR, the free rides are 20-minutes long, first come first served, and life jackets are provided.
