The third annual Upper Ottawa River Race and Paddle Festival is fast approaching. The event will run from August 11th to the 13th with events like paddle board and kayak clinics, a paddle race, kayak fishing derby and a heritage paddle. Petawawa's Economic Development Officer, Cindy Phillips, says that there's a new event added this year as well.
The festival will wrap up with the Paddle for CHEO. Participants can sign up to stand up paddleboard and collect donations. There is also a celebrity challenge where sponsors and municipalities put in teams and compete in a relay.
