Lock And Paddle Returns To Peterborough Lift Lock On Saturday

PETERBOROUGH-Parks Canada welcomes back paddlers and spectators for the fifth annual “Lock & Paddle” event on Saturday, August 26, 2023, starting at 3:00 p.m. at the Peterborough Lift Lock National Historic Site of Canada.

For this year’s theme – “Lift Your Spirits” – paddlers can decorate canoes and colourful kayaks. Imagine cheering, laughing, and crowding into the World’s Tallest Hydraulic Lift Lock – for a one-of-a-kind experience that sends you 65 feet (20 metres) into the air. This free event is open to all ages where you can decorate your vessel, wear a costume, or simply bring a smile.

To participate in the 2023 Lock & Paddle event, paddlers are encouraged to plan ahead by visiting the Lock & Paddle 2023 event page HERE, where you will find information on the event as well as paddler requirements, paddlecraft rentals, parking and much, much more!

This is a smoke-free and alcohol-free event that will happen rain or shine. Please dress for the weather and respect your fellow paddlers.
