Holiday Lights Paddle Parade

Bend tradition brings holiday cheer
The ever-popular Holiday Lights Paddle Parade returns to the Old Mill District this weekend — featuring paddleboards, kayaks and canoes all dolled up in festive Christmas decorations and lights. Last year, boats and boards decorated in holiday garb floated through the Old Mill District while lighting up the Deschutes River.

It's First Friday this week!

Here's where to find some fun stuff on the streets of downtown Bend.


Gaze west and you might start to get misty eyed at the sight of snow, just starting to accumulate on the slopes.

Maston Trailhead

A great place to play throughout the calendar year
Created originally for cycling options in the winter months, the routes at Maston are an example of how varied user groups can work together to form diverse and harmonious trail systems.

Sisemore Road

Get your gravel on with a great local ride
As many road riders turn their skinny tires and compression kits toward riding on gravel and dirt, the options for drop-bar riding are growing significantly.

Swampy to South Fork

Shoulder season keeps visitor numbers low and local stoke high
Cooler temperatures bring about a favored shoulder season for local mountain bikers, as the bug-infested, moondust-laden singletrack of the busy summer makes way for the slow times and the coming storms of fall.

Mrazek Trail

A longtime local favorite singletrack bike trail
There are certain trails in the hundreds of miles of singletrack in Central Oregon that become popular not because of any one thing in particular.

Twin Bridges Loop

The "must-do" ride for roadies
Bike riders come from near and far to ride bicycles in Central Oregon, and although the suspension-needy flock to the ever-growing maze of mountain bike singletrack, those who desire the smooth roll of paved roadways also come to the region to play.
