The cardboard boat regatta will take place from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10. Park district campers have been charged with building the unpredictable vessels and will observe the competition from the pool deck.

The cardboard boat regatta is the final Special Wednesday event and culminates another year of the park system's summer camp.

"This is an absolutely comical event to observe and a blast for the counselors. The campers work very hard at developing what they feel will be a 'seaworthy' ship and definitely work together as a team using skills developed during the summer programs," said Sabrina Hinkens, the park district's youth recreation supervisor.
