Welland FloatFest 2023

Ha Ha Ha, this is a fun event. On Sunday, July 9, 2023 the 8th annual Welland FloatFest had a record turnout as a large number of people turned out with floaties that they paddled on the canal. The launch site was the Lincoln Street Docks in the Rotary Club of Welland Park, this section is an off shoot of the Welland Canal, perfect for floating.

Registration was opened at 10am and the floating started at noon. The free event asked for donations of food in support of the local food bank and supplied several industrial sized air hoses to fill up the hundreds of floaties. The main sponsor of the event was Canadian Tire which is always a place to find good inflatables.

From the FloatFest website, "Spend a leisurely afternoon and evening with us picnicking along the canal banks, enjoying great food, amazing live entertainment all day and evening long, an artisan market for unique shopping, delicious food vendors, bouncy castles and other fun for the kids, and so much more!"

There was a Jetovator show followed by a firework show after FloatFest so all in all it is a fun filled day and a nice way to keep cool in summer.

See more floating after the jump.
