This year’s 21st annual Unlikely Paddlefest adventure goes this weekend in Likely.

And Mark Savard, Paddlefest organizer, is inviting kayakers and water enthusiasts to attend.

“People are coming from all over the place,” Savard said. “This year we’re focusing on paddling the awesome water levels we’ve got.”

The festivities go from Sept. 15-17, when serious kayakers will tackle the more challenging Chilko River on the final day.

The event is non-competitive and simply an opportunity to get out on the water, paddle and enjoy some of the rivers in the region. Camping spots are available in Likely along the Quesnel River.

“This is 21 years and we’re cranking off having some fun,” he said. “Come on out.”
