After neglecting the Oshkosh area for many years, we did our first evening paddle through downtown Oshkosh last year. The paddle was well received, so we are doing it again in 2022. We moved the date from July to September to take advantage of the earlier sunset, thus 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.
