Welcome to Salmon Homecoming!
We are very happy you are interested in participating in this year’s exhibition. If you have participated in the past, please note that we now require each canoe to register online to participate. This is for everyone’s safety and helps us be better prepared. Your online registration will immediately go to Gail Morris and Sadie Whitener. We do what we can to help with travel expenses by offering an honorarium to the first fifteen individual canoes that register. Also, we will only be able to provide meals for skippers, pullers, and essential ground crew, typically one or two ground crew. We regret that we are not able to provide meals for all canoe family members who may also attend the Salmon Homecoming Celebration.
The Canoe Welcoming will start at Noon Saturday. Plan to be at the boat ramp early. Canoes will start from Don Armeni Boat Ramp and paddle to Waterfront Park, which is about a 40-minute pull. Waterfront Park is located between the Seattle Aquarium and the Big Wheel. After the welcoming, canoes will be guided to the marina north of the aquarium.
Please feel free to bring regalia for sharing coastal song and dance Saturday afternoon!
