Every year Bend's most dedicated paddling enthusiasts dress up their canoes and kayaks in holiday garb and paddle around the Deschutes River for a few hours. 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 13, 2013 at 3:15 p.m. with your decorated kayak or canoe. After the crowd assembles, we'll depart from the dock at 4:00 behind the shop and paddle upstream up to the Columbia Bridge (near Red Robin). On our way back down, we'll assemble in formation under the Old Mill's Flag Bridge. 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 - 6 p.m. In past years, the paddler's of Bend have gone all out decorating their boats with lights, trees, wreaths and garlands. Bring some holiday cheer to your paddling experience and be a part of this longstanding Bend tradition. P.S. You can find battery powered lights for your boats at Lowe's, Walmart or Fred Myers, but they often times sell out. Join us after the paddle back at the shop for warm adult beverages (Lauri's Gluhwein!) and a slide show presentation about the multi-day sea kayaking trips to Panama that we offer every February. See the YouTube video below for a preview. The slide show will be about a half-hour with plenty of time for questions and answers afterward. We'll get you psyched for your own trip to Central America. All slide show attendees will recieve 10% off the cost of a Panama Sea Kayaking Adventure or Paddling Wellness Week with Tumalo Creek if they sign up within a week of the event.
