It’s Wild Water Derby Time In The Finger Lakes !!

After a long drought of “no” Wild Water Derbys, the Shortsville Manchester Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting the “comeback” for a third year.  The first two years of the comeback favored the crowd with great weather and entertainment via the registrants (kayakers, canoeist and of course the crowd favorite – the homemade rafts).  This year the event boast two days of activities including craft vendors, a Saturday night barbecue, and a “duathlon”. 

So if you would like to see some face paced action, visit with friends or meet new ones, come down to Shortsville/Manchester and enjoy a great day watching the races, snacking on some food, visiting with vendors and if you are really hungry, grab a bite to eat at the barbecue.  The Depot and Buffalo Bill’s will also be serving meals to the hungry and have libations for the thirsty.There are three different types of events, kayaks, canoes and home made raft divisions.  It is always fun and interesting to see what the creative water craft builders have put together and to see if they actually stay together.

Reminder, this is a family event, so no alcohol allowed on grounds and please be pet friendly and leave Fido home out of the crowds and weather.

If you would like to participate, there is still time – all you have to do is go to the Wild Water Derby website an enroll.

See you there !!!
