    Looking for a unique way to enjoy the last of the great Akron summer sunsets? Join YPA for an evening of kayaking and a patio party with live music, food, drinks and networking! YPA is excited to bring back our partnership with Burning River Adventures (BRA) and Roses Run to offer an evening of networking and fun at the right speed to wind down your work week (and summer). 

    If you want to enjoy a sunset on the river, then take a kayak trip with BRA! If you're not the kayaking type but still want to enjoy the patio party and networking, then just come straight to Roses Run. It's up to you to choose your adventure, with one or both events!  

    Kayakers will meet between 5:45 and 6:00PM at Brust Park in Munroe Falls. You will leave your car there, as this is where the kayak adventure will end. BRA will provide a shuttle from Brust Park to Roses Run, where you can enjoy appetizers, drinks, networking and live music from The Rusty Goat until about 7:15PM. At that time, kayakers will depart with BRA from Roses Run for the kayaking portion of the event. Your sunset kayak will last around one hour. After finishing kayaking, you are free to drive back to Roses Run for more food, drinks, networking and music! *IF YOU ARE GOING TO KAYAK, YOU MUST REGISTER AND PAY BY AUGUST 21ST*

    Not interested in kayaking? No problem! Join us right at Roses Run for the Patio Party, featuring complimentary light appetizers and music by The Rusty Goat. 

    We look forward to spending one of the last summer days with you!
