Paddle Georgia Journey’s End Celebration Fish Fry Dinner

(Franklin, GA) — This year marks the 10th anniversary of the extraordinary event known as Paddle Georgia — a Project of Georgia River Network.

Each summer, over 350 paddlers spend a week on a Georgia river, camping and visiting nearby “water towns” while traveling an average of 16 miles per day by canoe and kayak.

dsc_7437Flint Riverkeeper welcomed paddlers in the upper Flint in 2009, and again in 2013, on the lower Flint.

This year the group is thrilled to be providing the Journey’s End Celebration Dinner to the paddlers, their guests and local members of the Heard County Community on the banks of the Chattahoochee in the city of Franklin. 

Flint Riverkeeper’s cook teams have been catching and stocking up on a variety of fresh water fish to feed the large crowd who will gather near the Chattahoochee Bridge at Heard County Riverfront Park (The Old Recreation Department) on Friday, June 27th.

The group will be celebrating the success of the week’s events while reflecting on 10 years of Paddle Georgia fun!

Chattahoochee Riverkeeper is providing games and entertainment, including bluegrass music by the talented Heather Luttrell and the Possumden.

Tickets are $15 per person and you may purchase your tickets at the event (cash, check, charge).
