Kayaking for Kids
The seventh Annual Kayaking for Kids event, sponsored by Whitley County Tourism and the Whitley County Fiscal Court will be held Saturday, August 5th, 2023.
This is a fun race along the Cumberland River from Whitley County Fairgrounds to Croley Bend. All proceeds go towards supporting different children’s programs in the area, including resource centers in local schools.
The race will start at the Whitley County Fairgrounds (80 Moore Road, Williamsburg, KY), and end at the Croley Bend Boat Ramp. Registration will open at 8am at the fairgrounds with race time at 10am. If you are renting a kayak, please be at Croley Bend at 8am to catch the shuttle to the fairgrounds. Paddlers with their own boats will drop them at the fairgrounds at 8am, and then drive to Croley Bend to catch the shuttle back to the fairgrounds.
