On August 21 paddlers will launch from five sites across the Quad Cities to take over the river for the day. We work with the US Coast Guard to close the river and have a team of safety boats on the water to make sure everyone makes it to Lake Potter in Rock Island, IL, safely. At Lake Potter there are a selection of local food trucks and live music for participants to enjoy. At 2:30 we will all gather at the center of the lake for a HUGE group photo! After the picture we provide shuttles back to the launch sites.
Come out for a great time and help us set a world record!.
Don't have a kayak or canoe? Check out our list of outfitters that serve Floatzilla. Our outfitters will meet up with you at a launch point with the boat, then wait at Sunset Park to pick it up after you finish paddling.Please confirm your launch site and time with your outfitter as soon as possible. If changes need to be made they are easier to get done early.Find our list of outfitters HERE.
Included in your registration fee, River Action provides a shuttle service from Sunset Park back to each of the launch sites.
