Bring a lawnchair to the Paddle!

Although the forecast for Saturday does include some sun, be sure to bring a rain  jacket, chair and/or blanket to sit on at the Bear Flat takeout.  Treaty 8 will provide a Cultural Pavilion and Open Mic Session.

All are welcome (observers and paddlers) to take part in the festivities after the Paddle.   At approximately 2:00pm, after paddlers take out of the Peace River at Bear Flat (farmer’s field just downstream of Cache Creek before the Cache Creek Bridge on hwy. 29) Halfway River First Nation will be hosting a FREE BBQ. The Treaty 8 First Nations will be entertaining the crowd with   their stories and drumming songs. Cultural and informational displays will also be at the take out.

This will be a space for people to share what they value about the Peace River.  There will also be an open mic session so bring your guitar, poems, stories, and strong passionate voices.
