Do you have what it takes to conquer the Lackawanna River in January?

Fifth Annual ShiverFest

Only the toughest of the tough will paddle and revelers will fill the banks of the Lackawanna River on Saturday, January 19, 2019. A day of exercise and fun, ShiverFest draws the community outdoors during the cold winter to celebrate the Valley and the River that runs through it. The River runs all year long and the best way to recognize that is by braving the cold and conquering the icy waters! Check out the ShiverFest Course. Here is a helpful article to prepare you for this type of winter water activity.
