Paddle to the Symphony will continue with a combined effort with SOLAR and Heavner Canoe.

Paddle to the Symphony is a Celebration of Southeast Michigan outdoor groups and a Reunion for Hostelling International members – the founders of the event. This annual tradition is open to HI-USA members (current and former), SOLAR members and any group, club or individual.

This year’s Paddle to the Symphony will be Saturday, July 12, 2014. SOLAR is collaborating with Heavner Canoe to provide a fun evening on the water while enjoying the sounds of the Michigan Philharmonic. Meet at Kensington Metro Park in Milford, Michigan at the shoreline near the North Martindale Picnic Shelter.

Online Registration is now closed for 2014 – thank you – event Hotline number is 248-760-0940

This event is “Rain or Shine.” In the case of weather which restricts going on the water, attendees will be shuttled to the concert area and a voucher will be given to use with Heavner Canoe for a future canoe experience. Sorry, no refunds on event day or after.
