Does your canoe or kayak club, local paddling shop, or outfitter have any events that celebrate the holidays while paddling?

For example, in Seattle the Northwest Outdoor Center leads caroling excursions by paddle around the houseboats on Lake Union, and Paddle Trails Canoe Club runs an annual “parade of lighted canoes” on the city’s smaller Green Lake.

Let us know about any of these events and we may mention them in our December issue. E-mail us at with HOLIDAY PADDLING as the subject line.
