Kevin's Lazy River Adventure is a 10.5 mile community float trip on the Big Coal River in Boone County. The event takes place every last saturday in July.
Saturday, July 27, 2013
The annual Kevin’s Lazy River Adventure, scheduled for July 27, 2013, will be better than ever. Over the last five years, the event has grown to over 100 boats and 150 participants.
Boats will put in at John Slack Park in Racine and take out at Dartmont Park in Ashford. The Big Coal River Branch of the Coal River Group will have their annual free West Virginia Picnic at the end of the float at the Dartmont Park.
The 10-mile float is a fantastic community outing, and we hope you will consider being a part of this great day.
