Mattapoisett River Canoe Race This Monday

The annual Rochester Memorial Day Canoe Race will take place this Monday. The race begins at 8:00 a.m. at Grandma Hartley’s Pond in Rochester, Massachusetts, and continues for 11 miles along the meandering Mattapoisett River before ending at the Herring Weir at the junction of Route 6.

While last year’s race was hampered by low water levels, the heavy rains of this May should make for an exciting and fast-paced event. Food and beverages and good times await at the finish line!
