If you haven’t checked out the high-flying, freestyle action of the BV Kayak Rodeo, be sure to come out this year! Many of the best freestyle kayakers from around the world will showcase the cutting edge of freestyle at the Buena Vista Whitewater Park in South Main. As one of the first freestyle events on the Colorado circuit, the BV Kayak Rodeo has become a festive and exciting kick off to the Colorado season for spectators and competitors alike. The BV Kayak Rodeo will be the centerpiece of PaddleFest 2016 with the pro classes competing Friday (prelims) and Saturday (finals).
There will also be an OPEN or Amateur Class component to this year’s competition on Saturday May 28th from 9am -12pm. All ages and levels are welcome.
Winners will take home bragging rights and, in the case of the pros, a healthy cash purse. So come join us and drink a cold beverage at the PaddleFest Beer Garden (which showcases local beer, wine and cocktails) while you cheer on the paddlers.
