Here is what happens on the paddle trip

Paddle:  A gentle paddle along the Rancocas Creek from Ironwood to the Chestnut Street landing.  Bring your own canoe or let us provide you with one. We’ll bring you back to the Village Green after your paddle.

  • You will then be given a canoe and life preservers and will start your trip down the Rancocas Creek.  You will paddle to the the Chestnut Street Landing pullout.  The canoe trip will take approximately one hour.
  • At the Chestnut Street Landing pullout location you will have assistance exiting your canoe.  A transportation vehicle will be waiting for you to drive you back to the village green.

Fall Festival at the Village Green: There will be demonstrations and displays by local organizations and businesses giving you a chance to learn more about Lumberton.  The Village Green will be the center for the children’s activities, including face painting and pumpkin painting.  Live Band Music and Touch-a-Truck  will be just a part of the fun.  Look for dance demonstrations at 10 and 11 am
