The weekend's center of attention is Little Traverse Bay, the focal point around which festival-goers gather for family fun. Opportunities to get out on the Bay area a natural part of the festivities.
Kayak Demos - Friday & Saturday Noon to 8:00 p.m.
Paddle the Jiimaan Canoe - Saturday Noon to 5:00 p.m.
Have fun maneuvering the 34-foot-long, 5-foot-wide Jiimaan! This large canoe requires the cooperative effort of at least 10 people while a guide with knowledge of both the weather and whims of the bay helps all of the paddlers focus on the task at hand.
The free Jiimaan excursions are sponsored by the Odawa Institute of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians.
