Grandkids like stories. That's an inescapable reality. Why wait to have something to tell them about? Make a great story this weekend by being part of a world-record attempt.

On Saturday, August 18th, participants in Floatzilla will try to set a new world record for the Largest Raft of Canoes/Kayaks on our very own Mississippi River. Any paddle craft are welcome to attend, but only kayaks and canoes may participate in the world-record attempt.

Don't want to be out on the water? Volunteers are needed for the event.
