(Oct 4th, 2014)

It was rained out, and rescheduled to coincide with another HAA sponsered event. Turned out was a bit thin, but sheer enthusiasm made up for the lack of numbers.

Different water vehicle types gathered at Allens’ Landing, from art boats to barely floatable types to can that even float types. They paddled few miles upstream to across Tony Marron Park, where the Buffalo Bayou Shrimp Festival was held.

It is also important to note that the weather was spectacular.
