Floatfest – Mannum (Sunday, 4th May 2014)
The floatfest at Mannum was a fun event. Sunday morning saw the biggest raft in SA with kayaks, canoes, sit-on-tops, all joining at Mannum Waters to make a huge conglomeration. Paddle craft of all colours and shapes lined up to be counted in the inaugral Floatfest. When Cosi gave the word the waters parted – hang on that didn't happen – no when Cosi gave the word – all the craft came together to form a raft. Be in Mannum next year (Sat 2nd & Sun 3rd May) to make the largest raft and heaps of on-water activity, fun and getting wet.
