Join us for the 2010 Amazing Bronx River Flotilla on Saturday, May 1, 2010. The Flotilla begins in the north section of the river and winds down through the heart of the Bronx to the recently completed Concrete Plant Park! This trip is for experienced paddlers only!
See you there! Reclaim your river by participating in the largest paddling event in the Bronx! For more information, contact Michelle Williams at 718.430.4636 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Unfortunately, spaces are filled for the Flotilla. However, you are still invited to the picnic at Concrete Plant Park from 1PM - 4PM. We are also inviting those with canoes to contact Michelle Williams to register and participate.
For those participants that are interested, there will be a bike ride
