The Ohio River Paddlefest Weekend starts this Thursday with the Kids Outdoor Adventure Expo, followed-up by the Ohio River Outdoor Music Festival and the Ohio River Paddlefest. Saturday morning the U.S. Coast Guard will close the Ohio River to commercial and power boat traffic as paddlers launch more than 1,400 canoes, kayaks and human powered boats for a trip down river.

But while being out on the water is a great time, there are dangers involved, especially with the amount of commercial traffic that travels our stretch of the Ohio.
