GO FLOAT YOUR BOAT AT THE FREEDOM FESTIVAL’S CARDBOARD BOAT REGATTA

After a 14-year hiatus, the Freedom Festival’s Cardboard Boat Regatta is back during the Ellis Family Fun Fest on Saturday, June 8. As part of Cedar Rapids’ Fourth of July celebrations, this unique competition challenges teams to construct seaworthy vessels entirely out of cardboard and other approved materials. Catch the Z102.9 team competing in the exhibition race! Seriously, catch us. We might be sinking.

The race is on Robbins Lake at Ellis Park. Registration begins at 9 a.m., the exhibition race is at 10 a.m., and the general competition race starts at 11 a.m., with awards to follow. Find The Freedom Festival event schedule at the Freedom Festival website.
