In Marine Park, paddlers and bystanders participated in SUP demo's and SUP yoga classes, shopped for new gear at the various vendors, and more!
Kids enjoyed face painting, crafts, and decorating cheer cards for their favorite paddlers! 

The event concluded with a fun after party & lunch at Jamian's with fresh cocktails by Finlandia Vodka and Traveler's Shandy & Coney Island Brewing by Shore Point Distributing. Awards featured up-cycled trophies from past events that gave new life to pieces which would have ended up in the landfill.
