Get ready to kayak the Mississippi!
This August, Memphians will be able to experience the harbor in a whole new way with Kayak Memphis launching kayak rentals along the historic riverfront cobblestones. Starting on August 4th, book your boat to enjoy the day of festivities.
At 11:30 am, attendees are welcome to participate in a race to the AW Willis Landing. You’re welcome to rent a kayak or BYOK! There’ll also be a photo contest for those of you who feel no shame in doing it for the gram! Snap your best picture out on the water (bonus points for fitting the most paddlers into one picture) and upload it to Instagram. Tag @MemRiverParks and @KayakMemphisTours and use the hashtag #cometotheriver. Photos must be uploaded by midnight Sunday and the winner will receive a free Mississippi River guided tour for 2 people.
