The Canoe Museum's latest public endeavour was in Toronto at Sunnyside Beach for the MEC Paddlefest Toronto. Mountain Equipment Coop is a large Canadian outdoor gear retailer that hosts a number of urban paddling festivals across the country. This past weekend was in Toronto. The Canoe Museum has been participating at the Paddlefests for 2 years now and each year the show gets better and better.
This year, we premiered our new kids' craft "paint your own Paddle to the Sea"! We also brought along one of the original Paddle to the Sea models used in the filming of the Bill Mason and NFB film 'Paddle to the Sea'.
