THE GREAT RIVER-0794

Paddlers make their way down the Mississippi River for the inlet to Lake Potter in Rock Island on Saturday, August 19, 2017. The eighth annual Floatzilla event was held with River Action hoping to break the Guinness World Record for the largest connected raft of canoes and kayaks, which was set in 2014 by a group of 3,150 boats in Upstate New York.
