Mayor’s Paddles

Occoquan Mayor and PWTSC Board Member, Earnie Porta, will once again be leading “Mayor’s Paddles”, sponsored by Occoquan Regional Park, on the first and third Saturday of every month starting this Saturday, April 7. These kayak tours begin at 11:00 a.m. at the park, and consist of an approximately one hour historic tour of the Town of Occoquan from the vantage point of the Occoquan River. Kayaks are available for rent for $10 at the park, or you may bring your own (there is a modest fee for launching from the park). You may also join the tours in progress directly from the river for free. Hope to see you out on the river!
