Cardboard Regatta 2024

Support your senior center's boat at the 2024 Cardboard Boat Regatta! Each boat will race against time to be declared the fastest vessel in the water. The only catch, each boat must be made out of cardboard, duct tape and garbage bags. There will also additional awards for Team Spirit, Spectacular Sink and for the most creative cruiser. Please arrive at your senior center by 9:15 a.m. if you are taking the bus transportation to this event. Bus transportation has limited seating capacity.
