The rain held off on Saturday, and the Sun came out to play on Sunday as paddlers took part in the 2013 Mountain Equipment Co-op Paddlefest held at Sunnyside Park in Toronto this weekend.
Ontario Parks had plenty to share with pamphlets, maps and helpful tips from park wardens. Dave (pictured left) and others were more than happy to help you plan a route or answer any of your questions.
The Canoe, Kayak and SUP courses were great and the instructors really were top notch. They didn't seem to be in any rush to work through their course plan, and often took the time to help individual paddlers correct particular mistakes. Nick (left) and Peter (right) were very experienced and were wonderful teachers.
