Bayonne Kayak Event and Family Fun Set for September 7

Mayor Jimmy Davis and the Bayonne City Council announced that they will present Paddle the Peninsula, a kayak event, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at DiDomenico-16th Street Park, on Saturday, September 7, 2019.  Mayor Davis said, “Paddle the Peninsula will provide fun for all participants.  We look forward to this great event, which will take advantage of Bayonne’s prime location on the Newark Bay waterfront.  Come and enjoy the day on the water with your family, friends, and neighbors.”  For safety reasons, kayakers must be at least 18 years of age.

The kayaks will enter Newark Bay from the boat launch at the foot of DiDomenico-16th Street Park. Participants may either bring their own kayaks or sign up to use ones provided at the event.    On-shore activities at the park will include a barbecue, games, and music provided by a disc jockey.   The boat launch is located on Newark Bay, west of Avenue A, and below the end of West 16th Street.

Registration for the event is required, so that the right number of kayaks and other supplies can be ordered. To register, please call Jackie in the Bayonne Public Works Department at 201-858-6131.

Mayor Davis concluded, “Paddle the Peninsula is the latest in a series of activities that are intended to bring our community together at enjoyable events.  We hope you will register and join us on Saturday, September 7.”
