2022 Pack the Pond

Pack the Pond – ***POSTPONED TO OUR RAIN DATE OF Thursday, 8/4***

Pack the Pond is back this year, running on our rain date of Thursday, August 4 from 5pm to 8pm at Hudson Springs Park.

Join the hundreds of families that attend Pack the Pond! Activities include free kayak, canoe and paddleboard opportunities courtesy of Kent State University Recreation Department – because of strong demand, we do ask that people interested in these free activities please pre-register with Kent State using the following links (If you previously registered for a boat for 8/1 – that reservation will be held for you until the same time on Thursday, 8/4): 

We’ll also have information on geocaching by local experts “The Muddy Dawgs” and free hot dogs.

We are featuring the 10th annual Pack the Pond & Kayak Raffle; prizes are donated by our many outstanding and supportive Hudson merchants. Grand prize is a Pelican Mustang 110x Kayak with Body Glove Slider Pro Paddle. The grand prize drawing will be at 7:30pm, at the boat launch ramp next to May Pavilion at Hudson Springs Park. Raffle tickets can be purchased in advance at Destination Hudson Visitor Center, 27 East Main Street, open Monday thru Friday, 11am to 3pm or Saturday, 11 am to 1 pm.
