The 4th Annual Northwest Paddling Festival, a two-day event of paddle sports for sea kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is held at Lake Sammamish State Park in Issaquah. Organizers say it's the largest event of its kind in the Pacific Northwest and continues Saturday. The Supsquatch costs a little more than $3,500.
