3rd Annual Cardboard Boat Race - Hernando Beach Florida September 26

3rd Annual Cardboard Boat Race - Hernando Beach, Florida - September 26, 2015

 

In it's third year, this cardboard boat race has become a much anticipated fun event in Hernando Beach, Florida! 

When:  Saturday, September 26, 2015

Where:  Hernando Beach Marina, Shoal Line Blvd, Hernando Beach

Time:  10 am for participants, event opens at 11:00 am

Admission:  Free

 

You don't want to miss this fun event in Hernando Beach, Florida!  

As in previous years, brave "seafarers" have been working hard on the construction of their cardboard boats for this year's events.  The creativity and variety of "vessels" the participants are coming up with is always amazing.  

Of course, the true test comes when the boat is put into the water and captain and mates are beginning to race toward the finish line.  Will they make it or will they sink?

There will be several prizes including one for the "Most Dramatic Sinking". 

Come early to get a good viewing spot or to chat with representatives of the various Hernando Beach volunteer organizations that are going to be present.  There will also be food, vendors and entertainment throughout the event.  

After the race, join the Hernando Marine Safety Support Group, Inc. and the Hernando Beach Yacht Club, for their Seafood Feast at the Hernando Beach Yacht Club adjacent to the marina.

Silvia Dukes PA, REALTOR, CRS, CIPS, SRES,  What an interesting event.  I was wondering how the cardboard boats float, but I guess they don't all make it to the finish line.

Silvia, I would really like to see the cardboard boat races as this would be a blast to watch. I have no idea how you make a boat that will not sink with cardboard! 

Posted by Robert Bob Gilbert, Your Katy TX ( West of Houston) Real Estate Expert (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Anderson Properties) over 4 years ago

Silvia,

 I think this one if I am not mistaken actually makes the national news, because I remember seeing it on there a couple of years ago!

Posted by Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert over 4 years ago
