Unfortunately we will not be going in to Hayden Bay this season.  The rest of our route on this night is not affected (Hayden Bay is just a small portion of our route).  Between water levels and the added complexity of dredging operations / dredge lines, our safety team has determined that going in to Hayden Bay is a hazard for us.  

Route Details

7:00PM - Columbia Fleet assembles in front of James M. Gleason Boat Ramp, 43rd/NE Marine Drive and turns at the east end of the parking lot to head downriver to the I-5 Bridge Area including Grandma's Cove, arriving at approximately 7:30 PM at Beaches.  We parade in front of Beaches and nearby restaurants for about 30 minutes and then continue under the I-5 Bridge to the Vancouver Waterfront.  We pass by Hayden Bay approximately 8:45 PM.  The fleet begins on the Washington side and can be seen from both sides of the river.  The parade will not go into Hayden Bay this year due to river conditions.  The fleet is out for about two hours.
