Petrolia to Host Kayak and Canoe Days
The Community Services Department is pleased to announce Kayak and Canoe Days in Petrolia. Participants are encouraged to paddle out and explore Bear Creek and Little Lake between August 14 and 22, 2021.
The Town has a boat launch that is in Bridgeview Park North and is a very popular place among residents and visitors to launch a canoe or kayak and enjoy the scenery.
The Town is hosting an online photo contest and asks that participants share photos from their trips. Those photos might include wildlife, nature, fish, lily pads, your family all dressed up for the day or anything else. Participants are asked to send their photos to Thera at email@example.com by 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 22, 2021 to be included in the online photo contest.
Photos will be posted on the Town of Petrolia Facebook page for voting from August 23-27, 2021. The photo with the most votes will win $50 in Petrolia Bucks to be spent anywhere in Petrolia.
“…Activities like kayaking and canoeing have seen a dramatic increase in the past couple of years and we are pleased to see that so many residents and visitors are participating in outdoor physical activity. This event will perhaps introduce new people to the sport and encourage even more participation in the future.”
For your safety, participants are reminded to wear personal floatation devices and to observe caution while on the water.
