The City of Orange Beach Relay for Life Team is gearing up for its second of three Full Moon Paddles. The next paddle is scheduled for Sunday, July 29th. The paddles have become the number one fundraising effort for the Orange Beach Team.
The events are held at the Wind & Water Learning Center at 26267 Canal Road, behind the Orange Beach Public Library. Prior to participants pushing off into Wolf Bay to experience the nighttime paddle, area restaurants cater the dinner on the grounds for everyone to enjoy and area musicians donate their time to entertain. Dinner starts at 6:15 p.m. followed by the paddle from 7-8:30 p.m.
After enjoying the food, entertainment and meeting new friends everyone heads out onto the water in kayaks, canoes and sometimes a paddle board or two. Headlights and personal flotation device, such as life vests, are required and participants provide their own kayaks or canoes.
Dates and sponsoring restaurants for 2018:
- Sunday, July 29 - Cobalt Restaurant
- Sunday, August 26 - Luna’s
Registration fee is $20 per person. Everyone must be pre-registered. Online registration for the July 29th event is available at www.eventbrite.com.
