Cardboard Boat Regatta

May 20th, 2023

Set Sail Across South Lake! 

Our Annual Cardboard Boat Regatta will take place on May 13, 2023.

Start making your plans now for this exciting race on the South Lake at Discovery Park. Boats can only be made out of cardboard and duct tape – nothing more!

This is a great way for STEM/STEAM clubs, students, businesses and more to sharpen skills in building and designing boats for the ultimate test in the water.

Registration is free for student teams (ages 12-18). Registration for all other teams (adults and adult/youth members) is $25 through May 6, 2023, and $35 from May 7, 2023, until race day.

*Registration fee includes participation and park admission for up to 4 team members.

*The registration fee for additional team members is $19.99 for adults 18 and older and $14.99 for youth.

To register a team, please complete the registration form found here.
