Cuomo and a host of other state and local officials and business leaders participated in paddling events as the festival kicked off on Sunday in the Hamilton County village. Cuomo says the festival is designed to draw attention to the recreational opportunities in the Adirondacks and boost tourism.

Sunday's events included regional foods, live music, an art show and fly-fishing demonstrations. Professional and amateur paddlers competed over a 15-mile stretch of the river before the Governor's Invitational race Sunday afternoon.
