MADRAC. Annual canoe event on the MISSISSIPPI RIVER. MADRAC, the "Mississippi Annual Downstream Adventure by Canoe," was started in 1983 when five cities between Dubuque and Burlington were celebrating their sesquicentennials. The event always started from Dubuque except for the program begun in 1988. Annually between two hundred to four hundred canoeists participated.
