International Paddling Film Festival in Almonte, October 28th

Plan to attend the 13th Annual World Paddling Film Festival – an international film tour presenting a selection of the world’s best paddling films including kayaking, SUP and canoeing.

It takes place at the Almonte Old Town Hall on Sunday October 28th at 3:00 pm.

This celebration of adventure is a fundraiser for the Almonte Riverwalk Project which will extend the scenic trail near the Mississippi River.

“We are so lucky to have a river in our town and I know that these films will appeal to many in our community and beyond.” says organizer Mary Lumsden of Mill Street Books. Along with co-sponsor Vamos Outdoors they are covering the cost of the film and the town will provide the venue and staff assistance so that all proceeds go directly to the project. Co-sponsor Lisa Labonte of Vamos Outdoors feels this is a great event for her customers. “We expect to attract paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts alike for a fun afternoon.”

The Paddling Film Festival World Tour is produced by Rapid Media and presented in Almonte on Sunday October 28th at 3:00 pm. For tickets ($15 for adults; $5 children under 15 )and further information, contact Mill Street Books at 613-256-9090.
