Update: The event has been rescheduled to December 27, due to a prediction of unfavorable weather conditions.

‘Tis the season and the annual Illuminata Regatta returns to commemorate it. Of course, the event is where paddlecraft are festooned with Christmas lights and paddled on Salem’s Willamette Slough. Full details, this year, appear to only be accessible through Facebook, so I’ll have to make some assumptions. First, the venue for viewing appears to be Salem’s Riverfront Park. I believe the launch is probably Wallace Marine Park, however, and if you want to be involved in the on-water activities you should contact jennifer.carley@comcast.net for information, or call Jim (not me) at 503.871.5171. The time specified is 5:30 p.m., but it’s unclear if that is for setup or the beginning of the actual event. Again, if you have Facebook access, it appears you can find out more, there.
