National Canoe Day falls every year on June 26th where paddlers from across Canada will paddle, portage, attend an event, make a canoe-themed craft or work on their canoes that day (in some cases local clubs will host an event throughout the week).
Join in on the fun by tagging your photos #NationalCanoeDay and share how you are taking part in the festivities. Here are some photos from this year's celebration from coast to coast...
#ff with Jana in #killarney. Two things: today is NATIONAL CANOE DAY! And Ontario Parks launches Healthy Parks Healthy People #HPHP with some sentiments we strongly agree with: "Research proves it. Time spent outdoors in nature is not only beneficial for your health, it is a critical building block of your own health and wellbeing. Our provincial parks might be one of the most important health resources that we have as Ontarians. This year Ontario Parks is joining the Healthy Parks Healthy People movement. So to kick it off, I want all Ontarians to spend more time in nature and especially in our beautiful provincial parks. To celebrate, all provincial parks will be free for day use on July 17th. Many parks will be holding special events such as guided hikes, yoga classes, fun runs, scavenger hunts for people to enjoy." #findyourpark
Today is National Canoe Day! It's a day that's very special for us. The canoe is our way to get out and to explore the wonderful world around us. It lets us go deeper into the woods and be surrounded by silence and majesty. So today, get out on the water and enjoy the canoe! #paddleinontario #paddlein #canoe #canoeing #paddle #nationalcanoeday #canoeday #getoutside #watersports
