CLAYTON Piyak Paddlefest on the St. Lawrence River will be held July 3 in the village. Piyak Paddle, a new kayak and water sports rental shop at 532 Riverside Drive, is hosting the event.
The festival starts at 10 a.m. and ends that evening with Fourth of July fireworks sent up by the village of Clayton.
The event will feature live music from several local artists. Vendors, local businesses and charities also will be participating in the event.
A special re-creation of a historic photograph of a crowd of paddlers on the river also will take place during the event.
Participants and visitors are encouraged to bring canoes, kayaks and other watercraft to the front of Piyak Paddle, where an aerial photograph will be taken.
