GREENVILLE — Janet Shilling enjoys bringing families together for outdoor fun. That’s why the owner of Carried Away Outfitters offered a free Father’s Day float down the Shenango River.
“We had a free Mother’s Day float, too, but it was cold and it rained,” Shilling said.
While the temperature was a lot higher, it rained on Father’s Day too.
Despite the heavy rains, families still ventured onto the Shenango River for Father’s Day.
“One of the things we have found is people love to bring their kids,” Shilling said.
The decision to allow dads to canoe, kayak or float down the river in an inner tube is to “honor fathers on the holiday,” Shilling said.
Carried Away Outfitters operates from the beginning of May until the weather turns too cold.
“We had a float on Nov. 4, one year,” Shilling said. “It was beautiful. We stay open as long as we have good floating weather.”
