Get ready for FLOATZILLA! Aug. 15, 2020!

Registration NOW OPEN for Floatzilla 2020!

Take part in the largest paddlesport festival on the the nation's greatest river, the Mississippi! Help us set a new world record for the Largest Raft of Canoes/Kayaks. Experience the Mississippi River free of commercial barge traffic. All paddle crafts are welcome to participate, but only non-inflatable kayaks and canoes may participate in the World Record attempt.

Don't have a kayak or canoe? Check out our list of outfitters that serve Floatzilla. Our outfitters will meet up with you at a launch point with the boat, then wait at Sunset Park to pick it up after you finish paddling. Find our list of outfitters HERE.

Included in your registration fee, River Action provides a shuttle service from Sunset Park back to each of the launch sites.

Participants may register via one of several ways:
