New Year’s Peace Hike – UPDATE
January 1 @ 9:15 am - 11:45 am
Founded in 2011 by the Yachats Trails Committee, the annual Yachats New Year’s Day Peace Hike was intended to provide a way to enjoy a lively walk, share good company and empower the concept of peace on earth. Since then, the event has grown in size and meaning and has also become an important place for communication and healing between area residents and Tribes.
New Year’s Day Peace Hike
Concerned with the prediction of unsafe weather conditions, the 10th Annual New Year’s Day Peace Hike will take place entirely at the Yachats Commons (both in- and out-doors). There will be no hiking. However, folks will be encouraged to join the procession to the ceremonial fire outside the picnic shelter.
9:15am to 9:30am Attendees check-in at the Yachats Commons and music on stage.
