640 W Nationwide Blvd, Columbus, OH
Let's kayak on the Olentangy River for Red, White & Boom! Join a bunch of other kayakers for the best seats in the house for Columbus' fireworks.
Plan on doing a tailgate before we put in the parking lot behind the address listed. This lot fills up fast, which is why I'm setting for it 3:30pm. We'll have a portable grill, so bring something to grill or a dish to share, picnic supplies and a comfy chair. Also, please bring plenty of water...it's sure to be hot.
PLEASE NOTE: Columbus PD will safety check each boat before we are allowed to put in.
-wearable personal floatation device
- light source e.g. flashlight
- boat registration paperwork (in addition to the sticker)
- current license sticker on your boat
We'll put in near sunset and paddle about half a mile down stream. Fireworks start at 10pm.
Follow Nationwide Blvd to the end and turn right into the parking lot. The road may be blocked off. If so, your kayaks on top should let you through or tell the police officer that you are kayaking and they should let you through. There is also a parade happening about 6pm that make affect traffic.

I'll have sign up on one of the cars to try to make it easier to find us, as there are several other kayak groups that will be there.
