The Great Cardboard Boat Race
Kuehn Pool, 2501 South Kuehn Park Road, 367-POOL (7665)

Don’t laugh! Cardboard boats really can float! In fact, many boats raced three times at our previous events. Of those, we expect many will return and go for it once again. But here’s the catch: You may only use corrugated cardboard, duct tape, and your imagination. Cardboard may be waxed. Here’s a hint: If you layer the cardboard, it will be much stronger. No wood, Styrofoam, fiberglass, or plastic, except for your oars and paddles. All boats must be powered by humans seven years or older. Five age divisions. All boats will be judged based on creativity, sea-worthiness, and quickest to sink! Come join in on the fun and win some prizes. Each boat will need two participants: One at each end of the pool. Life jackets for this event will be provided by Parks and Recreation and must be worn by contestants. Swimsuits and registration required. The Great Cardboard Boat Race is free. Register at register.siouxfallsparks.org using activity No. 160009. Registration closes five business days in advance.
