Connecting people with nature in Ontario's Mississippi Valley

International Paddling Film Festival Coming to Almonte

Sunday October 28, 2018

 3 PM Almonte Old Town Hall

Plan to attend the 13th Annual World Paddling Film Festival – an international film tour presenting a selection of the world’s best paddling films including kayaking, SUP and canoeing.  It takes place at the Almonte Old Town Hall on Sunday, October 28th at 3 PM.

This celebration of adventure is a fundraiser for the Almonte Riverwalk Project, which will extend the scenic trails near the Mississippi River.

“We are so lucky to have a river in our town and I know that these films will appeal to many in our community and beyond,” says organizer Mary Lumsden of Mill Street Books. Along with co-sponsor Vamos Outdoors they are covering the cost of the film. Almonte will provide the venue and staff assistance so that all proceeds go directly to the project.

Co-sponsor Lisa Labonte of Vamos Outdoors feels this is a great event for her customers.  “We expect to attract paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts for a fun afternoon.”

The Paddling Film Festival World Tour is produced by Rapid Media and presented in Almonte on Sunday, October 28th, at 3:00 PM. For tickets ($15 for adults; $5 for children under 15) and further information, please contact Mill Street Books tel.  613-256-9090.
