Photos Highlighting 2016 Forgotten Coast Paddle Jam

Photos by Pam Lewis
Here are some spectacular photos highlighting the 2016 Forgotten Coast Paddle Jam held today at beautiful Battery Park & Marina in Historic Apalachicola.  In its third year, the Paddle Jam is a festival celebrating the Forgotten Coast through paddle sports, music & food.  The event is also an attempt to set a new Guinness Book World Record for the largest floating gathering of kayaks. The current record was set by One Square Mile of Hope (USA) in Inlet, New York, USA, on September 13, 2014 when 3150 kayaks and canoes rafted up together.

Proceeds from the event go toward helping “at risk” children, youth, and families in need through the Outreach Ministries of the Apalachicola United Methodist Church.
