BAYONNE, NJ - More than 100 Bayonne residents turned out at 16th Street Park on Saturday to “Paddle the Peninsula.”

“We had a large turn out, beautiful weather and a lot of fun at our second annual kayak and barbecue event,” Alicia Losonczy, one of the event’s coordinators said. “It was a fantastic event not only to bring the community together but also to celebrate our waterways!”

Also on hand to keep paddlers safe throughout the day were members of the Bayonne Fire Department and Police Department, Bayonne OEM, McCabe EMS, Newark Fire Department, and the New Jersey State Police Marine Division.

Informational tables were manned by the Bayonne Water Guardians and Bayonne Nature Club.

“Our waterfront is one of the great natural assets of our city, and one that is too often underutilized,” Mayor Jimmy Davis told TAPinto Bayonne. “This was an amazing day and Paddle the Peninsula is a wonderful new tradition that we look forward to growing so that our families can truly enjoy all that Bayonne has to offer.”
