Event Description

LIFT Youth Center Inc is excited to invite our community to attend The (4th Annual) Ringgold Creek Regatta! It is going to be a fun morning of paddling/floating along the South Chickamauga Creek through Ringgold. This event starts at the Canoe Launch by the Ringgold Nature Trail and continues to the launch behind Ringgold High School. We are encouraging BOATS, but ANY flotation device will work! So you may have a real boat OR you may have an inner tube or a unicorn float! You may want to float individually or create a group float of some sort. This is a community event and we hope lots of folks and families will join us. We’ll have some kayaks available to use thanks to Kayak Ringgold!
