5 Reasons to get involved in Floatfest

There are some events in life you just don’t want to miss and Floatfest 2015, is one of them!   It’s a two day event proudly instigated by the members of the Murraylands Regional Tourist Association, to encourage you to visit the wonderful Murraylands Region, and experience life by the River. Floatfest is a two day family event where we (with your help) attempt to break the world record at the largest number of floating kayakscanoes ‘Paddling into the Record Books’.

There’s fun for the kids, with ‘Come and try’ canoeing, the PS Marion steaming Houseboats, lots of fun and activities for all, stalls, markets, regional food, and much, much more. Here’s 5 reasons why you should consider getting involved in Floatfest15.

1)  Great family friendly weekend with lots to see, do and get involved in.

There is nothing better than having fun as a family! There will be plenty for the kids to do and be involved in and it gives them one of the last opportunities of the year to enjoy being out and about before winter kicks in. Book in some family fun time with us at Floatfest15 this year!

2)  Great team building opportunity.

Build your teams capacity to work together by bringing them to Floatfest. Teams can have a lot of fun together doing something similar, while being part of something massive!   There will be prizes for the best dressed teams, giving you even more incentive to get into the vibe of the event.

3)  Be part of a world record attempt.

Seriously, when was the last time you were involved in a world record attempt? For many people, the answer is NEVER! Here’s your chance to help make a difference all while enjoying some fun on the water and in and around Mannum. Make it a weekend to remember by staying and playing! This will be so much fun, we cant wait.

4) Take time to enjoy the beauty of nature right on our doorstep!

Life is soooo busy sometimes, we often need a reminder to get grounded, to get out into the fresh air into the country, and experience the wonders right at our doorstep. Many people across Australia have to travel a long way to get to the Murray and enjoy all it has to offer, for us, its just a hop, skip and a jump from Adelaide. Do yourself a favour before it gets too cold, and take in some of the beautiful nature and scenery the Murraylands has to offer.

5) It’s a safe way to have fun on the river!

The Floatfest waters will be protected under closed waters by Marine and Harbours meaning it will be safe for you and your family to enjoy time on the water. Put you and your family into canoes/kayaks and paddle the calm/safe waters to the Mannum Waters Marina and back again to Mary Ann Reserve. I promise it will be an experience you will never forget!
