Backpacks and Kayaks

August 4, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm


The Vinton County Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Raccoon Creek Outfitters to host Backpacks and Kayaks, a unique fundraising event to raise money to purchase backpacks and school supplies for local children in need. Beginning at noon on August 4, ticket holders will be treated to a kayaking scavenger hunt on Raccoon Creek, followed by food, music, and a bonfire. Food will be catered by Taste of the Good Life. Craft beer will be supplied by Pat Quackenbush. Live music will be provided by The Blues Cowboys. There will be door prizes, games, and activities throughout the event. The event will run from noon to at least 7:00 p.m.

Tickets cost $35 per person and are available for sale at the Vinton County Chamber of Commerce office and Raccoon Creek Outfitters. Children younger than 12 do not need a ticket. Tickets for the music performance(s) only (no kayak rides or food) can be purchased at the gate on the day of the event for $10. Children must be at least 4 years of age to ride in a canoe or kayak.

Proceeds from ticket sales will pay for event expenses and benefit other activities by the Vinton County Chamber of Commerce. Proceeds from sales, activities, and fundraisers during the event will be used to purchase backpacks filled with school supplies for local children in need. For more information, please contact the Chamber at 740-596-5033.
