Float Your Fanny Down the Ganny River Race

10 am – 3pm

To commemorate a devastating flood that inundated Port Hope’s downtown in 1980, the annual Float Your Fanny Down the Ganny river race is an exciting ten-kilometer race on the Ganaraska River, drawing crowds of up to 15,000 spectators.

Participants range from serious paddlers navigating the cold, fast moving water in kayaks and canoes, to the very entertaining “crazy craft” paddlers, floating any combination of materials down the river in an attempt to reach the finish line.

Entertainment, food and fond memories are always in store for anyone attending Float Your Fanny Down the Ganny.
