It's the largest paddlesport festival on the Mississippi River. It's Floatzilla and it's happening August 18-19 — two days packed with music, food and padding fun.

Participants can compete in a water balloon launch and kayak races during packet pick-up on August 18 at Credit Island. There will be food and live music presented by Daytrotter.

Then on August 19 paddlers will gather to set world records for the largest flotilla of man-powered crafts and the largest simultaneous kayak launch.

Here are some images from past Floatzillas.
