Spanning centuries from the old explorers to today's thrill-addicted outdoorsmen, navigating through the rivers and whitewaters of Colorado is a long-standing state custom. Celebrate that tradition with a splash at PaddleFest in Buena Vista. Even if you're new to paddling, or just want an excuse to spend some time near the water, there are plenty of reasons to join the festivities. Buy and sell paddling gear at Colorado Kayak Supply, watch pro and amateurs compete for kayaking titles, or partake in a variety of demos and clinics geared towards all skill levels. Proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Chaffee County. Fri noon-midnight; Sat-Sun 9 a.m.-11 p.m.; Mon 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
