Paddlers will take the Cuyahoga River by storm in honor of this weekend’s 50th anniversary of the 1969 river fire.

At least 200 canoes, kayaks and paddleboards are expected to participate in the second annual Paddlefest, hosted by the group Share the River.

Organizer Jim Ridge said it shows how the River’s image has improved from pollution to recreation.
