Three Rivers Federal Credit Union: Pedal, Paddle, Play - 6th Annual
Location Promenade Park - 202 W Superior Street, Fort Wayne, IN 46802
This year's Pedal, Paddle, Play offers event participants two ways to explore Northeast Indiana's land and water trails: a virtual option OR an in-person event on July 17th at Promenade Park. Current circumstances have changed the way we live our daily lives, but the trails still call. Pedal, Paddle, Play is your chance to get out and discover something new, contribute to fund-raising efforts to improve paddle sport access on our region's waterways, and have the chance to win some great prizes.
In-person Option - Registered participants will meet at Promenade Park - North @ 10am on July 17 to head out on the land and water trails on a scavenger hunt for hidden prizes and the chance to receive tickets to win even more at the famous Pedal, Paddle, Play prize drawing!
Virtual Option - Between June 1 and July 13, registered participants are challenged to snap a selfie or photo of a friend with the Northeast Indiana Water Trails logo in view while traveling the area's land and water trails; post your photos to NEIWT's Instagram or Facebook page with #PedalPaddlePlay2021; mention the trail or waterway where the photo was taken. Each tagged post will give the registrant a ticket (up to 5) for the prize drawing (do not need to be present to win)!
All are welcome to join the after party at the Auer Lawn from 12-noon - 2pm where you can learn from area environmental and recreation groups, get a cold beverage from Trubble Riverfront, and be entertained by the musical talents of local legend Pink Droyd!
The purpose of this event is to encourage the exploration of the water and land trails in NE Indiana, and raise funds for the Northeast Indiana Water Trails to improve access to outdoor recreation on our regional waterways. Funds raised this year will be used to continue the Trail Head sign program for the 87 boat access sites on flowing waters in NE Indiana.

Virtual: June 1 - July 13
In-person: July 17, 2021 10am - 2pm
