More than 500 people waded into the water or watched from the shore as the paddlers ended their journey Wednesday afternoon. Hundreds of others lined a nearby causeway or cheered from parks and bridges along the route.
We spoke with some of the paddlers and recorded some of the songs and filed this audio post card.
Celebration continues through Saturday night. You can watch many of the events on 360North TV or online at 360north.org.
