Every year the towns of Henry, Lacon, and Chillicothe host a HLS Kayak + Canoe Jaunt.
This is a 16 miles paddle from start to finish along the Illinois River. A shuttle service is offered. Participants drop boats off in Henry, drive to Chillicothe, park the car, and a shuttle bus takes everyone back to the starting line in Henry.
It's a great day, great event, great little way to highlight three charming towns. With registration, each participant receives a t-shirt, some swag goodies, a chance to enter the adventure raffle, a snack in all three towns, and an amazing time on the Illinois River.
Keep an eye out--this event is usually the last weekend in August every year! The year's Jaunt is scheduled for August 14, 2022. Check out our Calendar of Events for me details.
