CINCINNATI - After 10 years, Paddlefest is now a three day event. Beginning Thursday morning with a kids expo, the event runs through Saturday.

Kids from the Cincinnati area spent their day Thursday climbing rock walls, hiking and riding rowboats in the lake around the Coney Island recreational area.

Friday brings the Ohio River Music and Outdoor festival with live music, kayak fishing contest, cardboard boat races and kayak lessons.

And of course the weekend winds up with the main event on Saturday, an 8.2 mile cruise by boats of all shapes and sizes down the Ohio River to downtown Cincinnat, ending at Yeatman's Cove.
