Parade of Canoes
On Saturday morning, we will be updating the former Paddling Styles Demonstration and are excited to present our new-for-2017 Parade of Canoes, narrated by your MCS Steering Committee. If you have a canoe you would like to show off, or a paddling style you would like to demonstrate briefly, please feel free to join the parade-we will take care of the narration. Maine Canoe Symposium celebrates the diversity of canoesport, so the more participants and variety in the parade, the more fun for everyone.
If you want a head start on styles of paddling, check out MCS Pro-Staff member Shawn Burke’s Paddling_Styles_Primer.pdf to learn more about different styles before you arrive.
MCS is kid friendly. We have lots of activities to engage your children. All presentations and workshops will be open to adults. Parents are fully responsible for their children, there are no baby sitting options available.
Voyageur Canoe Race
The starting cannon fires at noon on Sunday. Be ready to either paddle or cheer your favorite team on! Which team will receive the infamous Golden Boot Award in 2017?
The Maine Canoe Symposium is supported by many fine sponsors and individuals that donate paddles, books, packs, poles, and gear of all kind for our silent auction on Saturday evening. Bring your checkbooks and find great deals while supporting MCS.
