Sioux Falls.org (KELO AM) - Get your duct tape and cardboard together! Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation will be holding the Great Cardboard Boat Race on Saturday, July 13, 2013, at Kuehn Park Pool. Put your creative skills to the test and see if your boat is seaworthy or not.
Each boat will need two participants. Cardboard is the main component of your boat and may be waxed. No wood, Styrofoam, fiberglass, or plastic, except for your oars and paddles. Wear your costumes and bring a lively rooting section with you!
All boats must be powered by individuals seven years of age or older. Life jackets must be worn and will be provided by Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation. Boats will be judged on creativity, seaworthiness, and quickest to sink. Prizes will be awarded.
The Great Cardboard Boat Race will start with registration at 9 a.m. Competition will begin at 10 a.m. This event is free to enter, and the public is invited to come and watch. Kuehn Park Pool is located at 2309 Kuehn Park Road.
