  • Mississippi river Water Museum Paddle Excursion

    Most people would rather visit history than read about it, so the first Water Museum Paddle Excursion is being offered this year. Bring your own kayak, canoe, or Paddleboard and paddle from Lum Park to Kiwanis Park and enjoy a peaceful paddle down the Mississippi river. Along the way, stop and visit Brainerd's first and only Water Museum where you can read signage of where past structures and events took place that helped shape this community. Afterwards you can exit at Kiwanis park and visit STREETFEST in the downtown Brainerd area. The event is FREE and a FREE shuttle service is provided to return those participating back to Lum Park to retrieve vehicles. Please register at: Facebook Event
