I was debating what to do yesterday, and my options included a hike, a long drive for a whitewater run, or an easy trip escorting Santa into Wickford Village. I opted for the easy trip in Wickford.
Wickford is pretty sea-side town whose street are lined with shops and colonial-era homes. Each year the local Chamber of Commerce organizes the Festival of Lights in the village with holiday themed actives. Since 2010, my local club (RICKA) has participated in this event by escorting Santa down the harbor for his big arrival at the Town Dock.
With boats decorated and matching elf hats, we met Santa for the short paddle down the harbor. I was amazed how many people show up for this event. After escorting Santa, we took a little time to paddle the backwaters of Wickford Harbor. Kind of corny, but still fun, and the kids seemed to like the candy canes.
