On June 13, 2012, Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe will host live music and boat demos on the back lawn behind the store, on the banks of the Deschutes River. From 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. Tumalo Creek’s fleet of 50 demo boats will be available to try for free with plenty of paddling experts on hand to answer any questions and get boaters comfortable out on the water.
This year, our June Pickin' & Paddlin' is a part of the Bend Outside Games. Please check out the other events for this awesome week here: http://theoutsidegames.com/
The music starts at 7 p.m., and with Oregon’s feistiest bluegrass band, Pitchfork Revolution on the bill, the whole family will be out groovin’ in the grass as the sun sets over the Cascade Mountains.
Mark your calendars for other Pickin’ & Paddlin’ dates this summer on July 25 (Shook Twins), August 29 (8 Dollar Mountain) and September 19 (Polecat).
One of the primary goals of the Pickin’ and Paddlin’ series is to raise awareness about the safety hazards of the Colorado Bridge and raise money for improvements. The BPTA is working with Bend Parks and Rec, the Old Mill District and many other public and private entities in hopes to transform the bridge into a public whitewater play park.
