Spartanburg Water hosted Paddle Fest at Lake Blalock Park Saturday.

The event helps connect the community to the local water resources, said John Moore of Spartanburg Water.

"People from all over the region have shown up today to come out and have a good time out here on the lake today and learn more about our watershed," Moore explained.

There were paddle tours, kayak and canoe races, and paddleboard classes.

All ages were invited to the free event. This is the second year for Paddle Fest.

Local organizations and businesses set up booths to show how they're contributing to the world of paddling and helping the environment.
