Marion County hosting romantic kayaking event on Valentine’s Day

The Marion County Parks and Recreation Department will host a romantic kayaking event on Valentine’s Day, and local couples still have time to sign up.

On Wednesday, February 14, at 5:30 p.m., the Moonlight Valentine’s Day Paddle participants will meet at KP Hole Park located at 9435 SW 190th Avenue Road in Dunnellon.

The kayaks will then launch off the boat ramp at 6 p.m. for a two-hour ride along the scenic Rainbow River. Illumination will be provided by nature and the parks and recreation department’s new kayak lights.

Once the participating couples have returned to land, they will be treated to pizza and sparkling grape juice.

Limited spots are available and there is a cost of $50 per couple to participate. The event is for adults only (ages 18 and up), and all equipment and safety gear will be provided.

“This alternative take on a classic date night sold out last year so be sure to sign up soon,” stated the parks and recreation department on its Facebook page.
