The status of the 2020 Holiday Lights Paddle Parade is still undecided. Check back later for more info.

It’s a Bend holiday tradition like none other.

Join us Friday, Dec. 13, 2019 for Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe’s Holiday Lights Paddle Parade and the opening night of the store’s annual holiday sale!

Every year Bend’s most dedicated paddling enthusiasts dress up their canoes and kayaks in bright lights and hol­i­day garb for a pad­dle around the Deschutes River in the Old Mill District. Last year more than 1,000 kayaks, canoes and paddleboards took to the water for this one-of-a-kind Bend event!

Pad­dlers, meet up at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe from 2 to 3:30 p.m. to decorate. We’ll set sail at 4 p.m. from the dock behind the shop and paddle upstream toward the Old Mill District Flag Bridge.

Spectators, boats will be making their way through the Old Mill District between 4:15 and 6 p.m.

After the pad­dle, everyone is invited back to Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe for tasty beverages and good company to celebrate the season AND to kick off the store’s massive Holiday Sale!
