LakeFest 2014: Raft-a-Palooza
Guinness Book of World Records Rematch on Lake Winnipesaukee
NH LAKES is thrilled to announce LakeFest 2014 will return to Lake Winnipesaukee’s Endicott Rock Park in Weirs Beach, Laconia, NH, on August 3, 2014.
LakeFest 2014 will feature a Guinness Rematch, as paddlers try once again to capture a Guinness World Record for the largest free-floating raft of canoes and kayaks. The current Guinness World Record for the largest free floating raft of canoes and kayaks on a single water body is 2,099 boats, set by Floatilla on Sutton’s Bay in Michigan in 2013. Hundreds of paddlers will return to Weirs Beach in 2014, with plans underway to recruit additional family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues in order to successfully seize that Guinness gold for NH.
On-land, the free family-friendly Festival is expanding, with more food vendors, additional programming, exciting new activities, popular live bands, and more.
In addition to offering a fun-filled day of paddling and on-shore entertainment, LakeFest also educates the boating public about the new Clean, Drain & Dry! protocol to prevent the spread of aquatic nuisance species.
