Ring in the holidays with The Reindeer Rush!

Welcome to the Reindeer Rush—Cascade Relay’s newest annual children’s event, marking the start of the beloved Christmas Parade in the heart of Downtown Bend, Oregon.

The merriment takes place right before the parade, giving families an exciting chance to participate in the holiday festivities. The Rush follows the parade route on Wall Street, with kids donning their holiday flair as they parade a short block down to the finish line. 

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Inaugural Reindeer Rush— We’ll see you back in 2024!
