July is alight with fireflies and fireworks. This month marks our nation's birthday and ever-popular Waynesboro traditions such as the Summer Extravaganza and the P. Buckley Moss Barn Show.  Balmy temperatures, starry skies, and live music make a winning combination in Waynesboro, where good times come naturally!

Paddle the Park & Guided Kayak Trips

The Paddle the Park program allows for the rental of both solo and tandem kayaks for use in Ridgeview Park.  Kayaks are rented for half-hour increments on a first-come-first-served basis on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons throughout the pool season. Register and pay riverside at the boat ramp near the River Shelter in Ridgeview Park.
Every Saturday starting at 10:00AM to 12:00PM you can also enjoy a 4-mile guided paddle down the South River.  The trip will start at Ridgeview Park. You will ride the gentle currents past Rife Park, portage the Invista dams, and continue on past Constitution Park and Downtown. A feeling of wilderness takes over until you finish your trip at Basic Park. At the end of your journey you will be shuttled back to your starting point.
