KPD Regatta

Registration is open for the Kingsbury Park District’s first annual Cardboard Boat Regatta.

It will take place on Sunday, August 7th at the swimming pool.

KPD Recreation Programmer Kayla Curry said people can build a canoe-sized boat out of cardboard and duct tape. A series of races will be held to determine a winner. The registration deadline is August 1 and the entry fee is $15 per boat.

Hours for the August 7th event are 5 to 7 p.m. Two people must be in the boat during the races. Both must wear life jackets.
