MARION (WSIL) — Lake of Egypt Paddle Fest is set to take place Saturday May 18 at noon, and there are already more than 100 people registered to participate from as far away as Florida.
Pyramid Acres Marina, Egyptian Hills Resort, and Mack’s Marina have partnered with Team River Runner, a National non-profit organization that gets disabled Veterans out on the water.
Kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, and even pedal boats are welcome to take part in the event at Pyramid Acres Marina (12057 Marina Road in Marion).
Jerri Schaefer from Pyramid Acres Marina says, "We wanted to bring more than just the fishing idea for it so we thought why not paddle sports, that is up and coming, so many people are doing it and traveling all over so we want them to travel here."
