8th Annual Paddle Fest

A Fun Family Day Benefiting Tara Hall*

Start the day by joining hundreds of other paddlers on a 4-mile trek down Black Mingo Creek in kayaks, canoes and on paddle boards. Upon arrival to the shores of Tara Hall's campus, join hundreds of others for outdoor activities, live music from local bands, food and more. Kids' activities include afternoon kayak races (older kids) and barrel races (younger kids). Paddlers and non-paddlers welcome - Call 846.543.3000 to register. Bring the whole family!


We also have a special celebrity guest, award-winning country music artist Jimmy Wayne, joining the boys on their paddle and then hanging out with us at the festival.
