Harvest Moon Paddle

Usually, when we think of paddling down the Blue River we think of summertime and canoeing or kayaking in the sunshine, but this event is a unique chance to experience paddling by moonlight because it takes place during the first full moon of fall, the Harvest Moon.


What makes the Harvest Moon unique this year as well, is its the final supermoon of 2023 so it will make for an extra bright night sky.  Here is what Cave Country Canoes have to say about the Harvest Moon Paddle:

Join us on the Millpond for a paddle as the night sky sparkles under the last full Supermoon of the year!

Trip times start at 5 pm and continue until 7 pm est. Please arrive 20 minutes before scheduled departure time to sign the waiver and then head down to the blue bridge over the Beautiful Blue River. You will then launch your boat on the ramp and paddle upstream for about 2 miles turn around, hang out on the river under the Harvest Moon and then paddle back to the ramp. After your trip, come hang out with us at Out of the Blue Coffee and Ice Cream shop for FLIGHT NIGHT. Try different types of flavored coffee with LIVE MUSIC by Tyler Hood, while sitting around campfires.

Television Shows Set in Indiana

From comedies to dramas to reality television, to arguably one of the most popular science-fiction series ever created, Indiana has had its fair share of Hollywood productions use a location in the state to serve as a "home base," if you will, for its story. Some of these you've likely never heard of, and some you may be a massive fan of.
