2019 Twilight Canoe and Kayak Dinner and Auction



It is that time of year again!  The Clark Park Advisory Council is preparing for the Annual Twilight Canoe and Kayak!   On Sunday, September 8th, a line of canoes and kayaks will be slowly gliding up the North Branch of the Chicago River, taking in the beauty of the river and the late summer twilight. 

We may see otters and beaver swimming, an occasional fish diving, and possibly get a glimpse of a blue heron or a mother fox with her young.  Of course the families of ducks may follow right along side of us!  Upon returning to land, there will be a fabulous catered dinner, complete with Jazz and tinkling glasses.  A silent auction is ongoing, as well as raffles, prizes and fun for the kids!

Please come out and have fun, while supporting programming and improvements for Richard Clark Park!    Kids are encouraged and welcome! Canoe and Kayak is included, just bring yourself, and your friends and family!
