Weekend on the Water 2023
Join us at the Kentucky River Park and Recreation Area in Irvine for a family-friendly Weekend on the Water!
Enjoy the Kentucky River on Saturday, July 22nd for TUBEular fun of floating down the river! The park has a loop and you can do the float as many times as you like! This year, we will also be launching our fun paddle from the same spot for kayaks and canoes!
We have tubes available for purchase (until inventory runs out), life jackets for rent (limited number available), and Get Outside KY will be on site with Kayak rentals (first come/first serve). River access passes are also available if you have your own tube or kayak. (River Access is required for all participants.)
This is a family-friendly event, but children under 18 are required to have adult supervision and everyone will sign a release waiver.
*Personal Flotation Devices are required!
All day at the Recreation Park we will have lots of fun land activities as well, including vendors, food trucks, games and activities at the Kentucky River Park. We hope you'll join us for this weekend of water, fun, and exploring Estill County and the beauty of the Kentucky River!
