This popular event is great for the experienced paddler as well as the novice. Paddle a canoe or a kayak into the setting sun. Walk into Milford for dinner or dessert before paddling back in the moonlight. When you return to the canoe rental, a bonfire will be awaiting you. No partner necessary, all skill levels welcome. Dress for the weather, including headlamps and water bottles.
Boats launch from Heavner Canoe Rentals, 2775 Garden Rd, Milford, MI. Arrive 15-30 minutes early to complete paperwork, pay, and pick out your paddle.
$25/person, includes kayak or canoe rental plus post-paddle bonfire. $5 bonfire only. Pre-register with Heavner at 248 685-2379.
Summer Solstice Extras: Handmade kayaks will be on display starting at 4:30 pm. For the June trip ONLY we will be shuttled to the Proud Lake Campground and paddle only into the sunset. Bring a bag dinner. Dessert will be provided during the break at the dam.
What is it?
Paddle to the Symphony is a Celebration of Southeast Michigan outdoor groups and a Reunion for Hostelling International members – the founders of the event. This annual tradition is open to HI-USA members (current and former), SOLAR members and any group, club or individual.
This year’s Paddle to the Symphony will be Friday, June 21, 2013. SOLAR is collaborating with Heavner Canoe to provide a fun evening on the water while enjoying the sounds of the Michigan Philharmonic. Meet at Kensington Metro Park in Milford, Michigan at the North Martindale Picnic Shelter.
Do NOT follow the signs to the concert, as we are positioned across the lake. Instead, follow the signs to “Martindale Beach,” park and walk to shelter “S.” Anyone going on the water should arrive by 6:30 p.m.
How Much does it cost?
Paddle with Box Lunch: Best Option with everything you need. One seat in a canoe (some kayaks will be available). Includes a box lunch with sandwich, two sides, bag of chips, cookie, pickle spear, drink and the all the extras. Eat before you paddle or take with you in the canoe. Canoeists will paddle across the 1/4 mile span to the amphitheater to the opposing shore. Canoeists will return as the sun goes down and the music keeps you going.
Paddle and Box Lunch: $35.00 per person.
Paddle Only (no food): One seat in a canoe (some kayaks will be available). You may bring your own food. Price is $25.00 per person.
Food Only (no paddle): Bring your own kayak or canoe. Price is $15.00 per person.
Event Only (no paddle or food provided): Bring your own canoe or kayak and bring your own food. Alternatively, enjoy the evening without going on the lake or having dinner. Guests may hear the music from shore. Price is $5.00 per person.
Water and soft drinks will be available for everyone with any option you select. All canoes and kayaks MUST have at least one adult per watercraft.
Please Note: With any option you choose, you will still be responsible for the park vehicle entrance fee of $5.00, so carpool if you can.

Come and canoe or kayak the beautiful Huron River with us.

For years we’ve been the popular choice for church, school, and community and scouting organizations.
