A lot of Bangor residents will tell you it is one of those things that you just have to do once.  But as fun as it is, there are also some risks. Risks involve getting, cold and wet, losing your personal belongings, losing your canoe, losing your paddle, or worst of all, losing your paddling partner!

Dare to take on the rocky rapids at 6-Mile Falls? You can read all about it and sign up here now! The race will be Saturday April 16th.
