  • Overview

    Join Spring Lake Outpost for their second annual Float for the Fallen Memorial Day event. This is a sunset kayaking paddle down the Little River on the eve of Memorial Day to honor our military members who made the ultimate sacrifice.

    Kayakers will begin paddling at 6:00 p.m., followed by a candle release upon their return to the starting point, after sunset. All participants (kayakers and any community member who wishes to attend) will be given a floating candle and release them onto the river after sunset. Each candle will be dedicated to a fallen comrade, friend, or family member. Participants will launch the candles to adorn the Little River.

    For kayakers, the route is 3 miles and takes 1-1/2 hours to paddle. Kayakers will be picked up and transported back to the start point, where they will join the candle release.

    Tickets include a kayak, paddle, life jacket, transportation, and of course, a floating candle dedicated to a loved one. This event is family and pet friendly.
