Holiday Lights Winter Paddle Parade
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 at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe on Friday, December 15, 2017 from 2-3:30 p.m. to decorate. After the crowd assembles, we’ll depart from the dock around 4:00pm behind the shop and paddle upstream up to the Flag Bridge.
