CINCINNATI (AP) - Participants in Cincinnati’s Paddlefest will see some changes at the 15th annual event this year, expected to draw about 2,000 canoe and kayak enthusiasts to the Ohio River.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/219GO4T ) the event, which previously was held in June, will be Aug. 6 and will feature a new and little-bit-longer route. It will begin at Schmidt Recreation Complex in the southwestern Ohio city’s East End and will finish up 8.9 miles downriver at Gilday Park.

Paddlefest coordinator Miriam Wise says the new route allows adventurers to travel under all six bridges along the river.

Also new will be the placement of guides at positions near the mouths of the Licking River and Mill Creek.

A festival celebration will greet paddlers at the finish line.
