Every Memorial Day weekend, CKS Main Street puts on a great event called Paddlefest. This event held in Buena Vista Colorado is the kick-off to the paddling season. Tons of events/clinics/music/beer/etc for everybody. Check out the website, www.ckspaddlefest.com, and make your way to BV! If you're coming from out of town and would love to have a raft to explore our local Arkansas River stretches, check out what Colorado Raft Rental has to offer. The 13' Super Puma set up as a paddle boat or a oar boat would perfect your weekend. A small light-weight trailer is available should you need it for convenience.
