The opening day of Paddlefest includes a Kids Outdoor Adventure Expo at Coney Island presented by the Hamilton County Park District and sponsored by RiverWorks Discovery. It's loaded with cool fun on a hot day including towboat tours, storytelling, how to cast and catch a fish and how to paddle a raft. Friday offers up the Ohio River Music & Outdoor Festival, and Saturday's 8.2 mile trip from Coney Island to Yeatman's Cove via canoe or kayak on the Ohio River drew more than 2,000 paddlers last year. Finish up the leisurely float with the Finish Line Festival at Yeatman's Cove, or landlubbers can try the new Cincy Pedalfest with staggered start times.
