Kayaks can be rented from GLL Marine for $10. This year’s event is pirate themed and as such, there will be a pirate costume contest.

In addition, this event will have concessions, a splash pad for the kids, and even a treasure hunt with cash prizes. The event itself will cost $20 for adults, $10 for kids, and kids that are riding with their adult or guardian are free. This

year’s event will be in benefit of Patricia Smith of the Troup County Sheriff’s Department.
