We enjoyed our second evening paddle through downtown Oshkosh last year so well that we’re planning a three-peat! The late September date will give us the advantage of an earlier sunset, allowing us to paddle a little longer to take in the evening lights of Oshkosh.
YOU MUST HAVE A WHITE LIGHT AVAILABLE TO DISPLAY IN THE PRESENCE OF MOTORBOAT TRAFFIC. Or this is the chance to light up your boat like a Christmas tree.
This paddle trip will be an out-and-back round trip from the park at 362 Michigan St, instead of a one-way trip to avoid shuttling.
