Get out on the water this weekend and test your skills in a fleet of watercraft at Ramona Park in Portage.

Lee's Adventure Sports will bring an armada of watercraft including canoes, kayaks and stand up paddleboards for you to try out. Manufacturer reps will also be there with even more fun Summer toys.

I attended in 2014 and found the crew to be friendly and helpful. They did a great job of explaining the differences between models and even had some performance tips. Sales staff was present to answer and questions and special pricing is available but I didn't feel like it was a high-pressure pitch.

So get out on the water and have some fun- find out what floats your boat!
