Welcome to River Action's annual paddle event on the Mississippi River, Floatzilla! Paddlers will launch from five sites across the Quad Cities to take over the river for the day. We work with the US Coast Guard to close the river and have a team of safety boats on the water to make sure everyone makes it to Lake Potter in Rock Island, IL, safely. At Lake Potter there is a selection of local food trucks and live music for participants to enjoy.
Come out for a great time and help us set a world record! Don't have a kayak or canoe? Check out our website for a list of outfitters that serve Floatzilla. Come on and have some fun paddling along the mighty Mississippi River with thousands of other paddlers from across the U.S. and Canada. It's a blast!
