Lock and Paddle: Light up the Night

August 24, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm

For the first time in 60 years, there’ll be a night-time paddle through the Peterborough Lift Lock! Come be a part of this dusk-to-dawn experience, with a canoe parade, campfires, musical entertainment and the opportunity to camp at the lock. Pre-registration recommended as there is a cut-off capacity to ensure safety.

Join the Canadian Canoe Museum in our Voyageur Canoe at the head of the Lock and Paddle canoe parade into the lock. 16 seats total available — free. Arrive at 5pm to help us decorate the canoe! Pre-register for these spots by emailing [email protected] Please note that your spot is not confirmed until you receive email notification from Thomas. 

Parks Canada is the host and coordinator of this year’s Lock and Paddle. All tandem (regular) canoe and camping registration and information is available through its site here, by calling the Lift Lock Visitor Centre at (705) 750-4950

Can’t join us on the 24th? Register for one of our daytime Voyageur Canoe Tours here – summer fun for all ages and experience levels!
