There’s nothing better than spending a beautiful afternoon floating on the Welland Recreational Waterway with a few thousand or more like-minded people.

The recreational canal was jam-packed with floaters of all ages enjoying the fourth annual Canadian Tire Welland Floatfest Sunday, July 7/2019 at the Welland Scuba Park.

“It’s been an amazing day,” Floatfest founder Phil Gladman said. “The place is packed from end-to-end, there are lots of people in the water and everyone is enjoying themselves.”

The Canadian Tire Welland Floatfest is truly a family-friendly event.

“It couldn’t be a more perfect day,” said organizer Leanna Marie Villella. “All the hard work by the committee has come together in a great way.”

“Just look at the families, seniors, teens, kids, all enjoying themselves, they all love it,” she said. “We’ll keep doing this as long as the community wants it.”
