Where else do you see pirates, rats, Vikings, yaks, swamp hippies, cowboys, sharks, and patriots paddling down our river? At The River Rat Paddle Challenge, of course! You will start at the boat ramp on Bayou D’Arbonne near the White’s Ferry Road Bridge and end on the Ouachita River at Trapp’s Restaurant in West Monroe for food, fun, and awards. Participants will race (or leisurely enjoy a good time) down a 6 and a half mile stretch of the scenic Ouachita River. Paddling enthusiasts will enter numerous categories for kayaks, paddle boards, canoes, and just about any type of paddle craft you can imagine! Individuals will race to see who is the fastest, but will also compete for awards for the largest, fastest, and most spirited teams.
