Blue Moon Paddle at The Floathouse

The Floathouse

50 E. Washington St.

Event Link

Wednesday August 30, 2023

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Meet at The Floathouse docks and we’ll outfit you in single and tandem sit-on-top kayaks and glowsticks (You can also bring your own LED low lighting if you wish.) We’ll guide you downriver for a bit, then paddle back to catch the massive moonrise on the river’s most peaceful moon-viewing location. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, “The August 30-31 supermoon will be the closest, biggest, and brightest full supermoon of 2023. It’s exceptionally close in Moon miles from Earth (222,043 miles). The next time we’ll have a closer full supermoon is November 5, 2025, when the moon lies 221,817 miles from Earth.”
