July 22: SoundWaters Flotilla
Talk about a movement to protect Long Island Sound! This event actually moves – from Cove Island Park on Stamford’s east side to Boccuzzi Park on the west side – hundreds of people of all ages and skill levels paddling kayaks and paddle boards in a big, colorful flotilla of small boats, finishing with a great party celebrating a fun day and a job well done. Everyone paddling is telling their friends and family and raising money to help SoundWaters teach more underserved kids about Long Island Sound.
So grab your kayak or paddle board – or borrow one from your friend or neighbor – and join the SoundWaters Flotilla.
