2018 Flint River Flotilla – Float to Paradise

Saturday, August 4th, 2018

Mott Park Recreation Area, Sunset Dr. east of Ballenger Hwy.

The Flint River Flotilla returns for its 4th year as the best river party in Flint! This year, we’re floating to paradise with an island theme, so come in your finest island attire and decorate your boat to match. Bring your inner tube, paddle board, kayak, canoe, or anything that floats and join us on this relaxing and fun journey down the Flint River from Tenacity Brewing to the Mott Park Recreation Area. Stay for the after party at the Mott Park landing featuring food trucks, music, and photo ops.

You ticket gets you access to a shuttle from the parking area to the launch site, American Canoe Association insurance, Flotilla entry, and an “I made it to paradise!” sticker, exclusive for 2018 participants.
