The fair offers free 50-minute workshops for kids ages 6 to 13. The classes cover proper fitting of a personal flotation device and helmet, how to safely maneuver in the currents and eddies and how to escape potentially dangerous situations in the water. Each participant will be able to keep the equipment free of charge upon completing the course. In addition, advanced classes using boogie boards are available for children who have successfully completed the introductory workshop. Reservations are not required and workshops are first-come, first-served.
