Participants can register to bring their own kayak, reserve a stand up paddle board or kayak, and join a paddle carefully timed with coastal tides.

The arrival of the flotilla will kick off a celebratory street festival at approximately 1:00pm, with vendor booths, street musicians, a beer garden and fantastic food provided by the Pelican Pub Tap Room [ yourlittlebeachtown.com/pelican/taproom ]! Historic interpretation will be provided by Tillamook County Pioneer Museum [ tcpm.org ] with educational displays about the trade route, it's importance to the region, and the formation of the City of Tillamook. As Museum Director, Gary Albright describes, “The slough was simply the lifeline for Tillamook City from the first pioneer settlement until the railroad arrived in 1911.”
The Tillamook Estuaries Partnership will offer ecological interpretation of the Tillamook Estuary System and the Tillamook County Water Trail [ tbnep.org/water-trails.php ].
Paddlers will gather starting at 10:00am and the street festival will kick off with the arrival of the flotilla 1:00pm.
