Kayakers from across the midwest took part in Paddle-Mania and Blast to the Bridge event on the St. Louis River Saturday.

Blast to the Bridge was a race down the river for expert kayakers starting at the Thompson Dam and ended at the swinging bridge in Jay Cooke State Park. .

"It's a very formidable river," said Josh Fischer. "It creates the best paths and probably this area in the state."

Fischer also says that parts of the St. Louis River are comparable to the Colorado River that runs through the Grand Canyon.
