River Day on the Androscoggin River (Saturday, June 16th) , is proud to celebrate Coös County River Days, in conjunction with Paddle Fest on the Connecticut River (Saturday, June 23rd).

River Day, June 16th, is a day of celebrating the Androscoggin River, a day full of things to do and see. There will be a “Family Fun Float” with anything that floats. All are invited to show their ingenious floating creations and “Float” down the river from Nansen Wayside to the Park.

There will also be a Canoe/Kayak race from Bofinger Conservation Area to the Park!
