Join Tumalo Creek for the Holiday Lights Winter Paddle Parade and the opening night of our annual holiday sale!

Every year Bend’s most ded­i­cated paddling enthusiasts dress up their canoes and kayaks in bright lights and hol­i­day garb and pad­dle around the Deschutes River for a few hours for Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe’s Holiday Lights Winter Paddle Parade in the Old Mill Dis­trict. This is one of those events that gets the whole town in the spirit and feels very authen­tic to Bend.

Pad­dlers should meet us at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe on Fri­day, Decem­ber 14, 2018 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. to decorate. After the crowd assem­bles, we’ll depart from the dock around 4:00 p.m. behind the shop and pad­dle upstream up to the Flag Bridge. On our way back down, we’ll assem­ble in for­ma­tion; this will give fam­ily and friends the oppor­tu­nity to take pho­tographs of our dec­o­rated boats.

PLEASE NOTE: Spec­ta­tors should plan on see­ing our dec­o­rated boats from about 4:15 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
