Two Harbors Kayak Festival Set For This Weekend

Dwarfed by the laker in the background participants try out kayaks in the waters of Burlington Bay during a previous Two Harbors Kayak Festival.

The 20th annual Two Harbors Kayak Festival will be held Saturday and Sunday at Burlington Bay in Two Harbors. This will be the final year of the event, sponsors said.

The event will include the Ellen Anderson 10-mile kayak and SUP (stand-up paddleboard) race and the Betty’s Pies 5-mile kayak and SUP race. (This year’s 18-mile marathon race has been cancelled.)

The event also includes local exhibitors, kayak demos, SUP demos & classes, beginning level instructional family tours, kids’ kayaking, live music and food. Visit kayakfestival.org to register for races, tours, clinics and other events.
