Rowlett Cardboard Boat Regatta

Saturday, April 28 @ 1:30 p.m. at Community Park (8500 St. Andrews)

Community Park will be full of spectators waiting to see who will float, sink or swim at the “Rowlett Cardboard Boat Regatta”. Contestants will make boats out of cardboard & tape and will rely on their inventions to keep them afloat as they race across the Community Park Pond. Pre-registration is required & all teams will need to collect their own cardboard. Life vests are mandatory for all team members. Trophies will be awarded to the winners!

Age Groups: Youth (8-13); Adult (14+)

Fee: $30

*Perfect team-building activity for schools, churches, local businesses, sports teams, families and friends!
