Test Drive A Canoe!
The only way to know what kayak or canoe feels right to you is to park yourself in one and take it for a glide. So take the opportunity to do just that Saturday and next Sunday on the Milwaukee River, right behind Laacke & Joys, 1433 N. Water St., during the store’s Paddle fest. The outdoor outfitters will have dozens of crafts available for test spins from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Try one, come back, try another and another ’til you can say, “This is the one.” There will be seminars on choosing kayaks and paddles, kayak fishing and how to transport your craft. You can also sign up for miniclinics on paddling basics and guided river tours.
