SPECIAL EVENT | Lockapalooza 

Whitewater paddling is an experience generally reserved for natural rivers and waterways. But just off of the Erie Canal's Lock 32, Genesee Waterways Center has turned the lock's runoff into New York's only man-made whitewater course. To celebrate the location, the GWC will host Lockapalooza, an annual event that offers a day full of paddling. Experienced kayakers can compete in slalom races, boatercross — a race that the GWC describes as "a mass start mad dash to the finish" — and whitewater rodeo, a competition in which paddlers attempt to flash their best freestyle playboating tricks. Flatwater paddling is also available for newer participants who want to experience a more laidback form of kayaking. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

Lockapalooza takes place Saturday, August 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Genesee Waterways Lock 32 Whitewater Course, 2797 Clover Street. Competitions are scheduled throughout the day, culminating in an awards ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Tickets cost $25. For more information and ticket sales visit lockapalooza.com.
