While tourists gather at the Inner Harbor tonight to bask in the balmy weather, you could be peacefully paddling on the Patapsco taking in the first warm-weather weekend sunset of the year.

If you’re sold on that vision (and don’t mind testing the waters of the harbor), head to Middle Branch Park in Cherry Hill at 6 p.m., where Baltimore City’s Department of Recreation and Parks is offering free canoe and kayak rides (while supplies last–there will be 10 kayaks and 10 canoes available, according to an event listing). Staff will be on hand to supervise and offer guided tours and tips to newbies. Click here to reserve a spot (registration required).

If you can’t make it tonight, this is just the beginning of sunset paddle season. Starting today and running through September, Rec and Parks will be hosting these paddle sessions every Friday at the same waterfront location. Email outdoor recreation programmer Molly Gallant with questions at molly.gallant@baltimorecity.gov.

6-8 p.m. (changes to 7-9 p.m. June through July), 3301 Waterview Ave., (443) 984-4058, baltimorecityrecandparks.org, all ages, free for city residents ($20 for non-residents), all ages.
