NEENAH - Portage changes are made to the 13th annual Park-to-Park Paddle event due to the ongoing mechanical issues with the Menasha Lock.

Organizers of the state's largest kayak and canoe day trip said they will stick to the usual 8.5 mile route on the Fox River, however this year the paddlers will need to carry their boats around the lock.

Normally the lock is packed with hundreds of brightly colored boats.

A problem with a hinge on one of the steel gates that holds back river water is blamed for the lock being closed for Saturday's event.
