Joel McCann Memorial Canoe Race
May 6 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm$10
Calling all kayak and canoe enthusiasts! It’s time for the Annual Joel McCann Memorial Canoe Race (aka The Great Buffalo Canoe Race).
Registration starts at 8 am at Hough Park, and the race begins at 9 am. The race ends at the walking bridge in Farmington, and there’ll be a small reception at the Farmington Fire Dept following the race.
Participants must have a life jacket and whistle. Children under 15 must have a waiver signed by an adult.
Each year since 1966, canoers and kayakers have paddled their way down Buffalo Creek to take the winning title. Will this be your year to cross the finish line first?
