The aroma of funnel cakes filled the evening air at the lakefront celebration of Columbia’s 45th birthday in June. And if that wasn’t enough to attract people to the lakefront celebration, there was another alluring attraction: paddle boats. They’re back, and with plenty of time for their use during the many gorgeous summer nights at Lake Kittamaqundi.
Take a visit to the booth across from Clyde’s, and you’ll discover that just $15 gets you a sparkle-blue paddle boat for a half-hour. These traditional paddle boats seat up to four people — two pedalers and two riders. Once the supplied life vest is on, you can get the voyage underway. The front two passengers can pedal while the two in the back do the really hard job of working the smartphones to get some happy pictures, post ’em and capture another happy memory.
Lakefront paddle boats can be rented during the following times:
Monday–Friday from 4–dusk
Saturday and Sunday from noon–dusk
One person per boat must be at least 18 years old, and all paddle boat riders must be at least a year old. Plan an evening out on the lake while summer’s still here! Call 301-370-5105 for more information.
