Three New Events On Tap

Three New Events On Tap

By Beth Milligan

In spite of recently enacted restrictions that have chased some events and festivals out of downtown Traverse City's Open Space, local event organizers are continuing to explore creative uses for other community parks and venues. The Ticker has a sneak preview of three high-profile events planned for later this year that prove that while the area's event scene may have hit a road bump, it shows no signs of slowing down.

The Boardman Open
With open-water events including June's Paddle Across West Bay and the upcoming Power Island Rapa Nui paddle run on August 2 already under his belt, RaceTC founder Daniel Novak is ready to take on the rapids at the Boardman Open on Saturday, August 30 from 8-11am.

The inaugural paddle race at the Brown Bridge Quiet Area – in which participants can compete using kayaks, canoes and stand-up paddleboards – will feature a 5-mile course for recreational paddlers and amateurs and a 16-mile course for more serious competitors along the Boardman River. Both courses launch at Scheck's Landing; the shorter route will end at the former Boardman Brown Bridge Dam Landing, while the longer route will stretch to Beitner Landing. more
