The Halloween Paddle is a fun and maybe a little spooky river paddle… never know what kind of monsters might appear. Guests are encouraged (not required) to wear costumes, bonus points for river, water, animal themed costumes! We’ll set out at dusk from River Park and travel north along the North Shore Channel, distance depends on the paddling speed of the group. 

No paddling experience necessary. Trips start and end from the same location, rain or shine! Friends’ trusty canoe guides will help everyone safely load in and out of the canoes, answer questions about the river along the way and act as safety monitors on the water. We provide all equipment, paddling instruction, and safety talk. 

All paddlers receive a complimentary one-year Friends’ membership! We recommend paddlers are at least 10 years old and all minors paddle with a guardian. Younger river lovers from 5-10 years old are invited to enjoy the event with their family by sitting in the center of the canoe. All participants must sign waiver provided in confirmation email, guardians need to sign on behalf of minors. Registration required.

This is the final paddle of the year, hope to see you then.
