33rd Annual World Championship Cardboard Boat Races

33rd Annual World Championship Cardboard Boat Races

2019 World Championship Cardboard Boat Races 



The theme for the 2019 World Championship Cardboard Boat Races is Planes, Trains and
Automobiles. Race participants will stretch the limits of their ingenuity to design boats that represent

their favorite mode of transportation that is not a boat. Whether the choice is Thomas

the Train, a Fighter Pilot, a Model A Ford, a Conductor or the Spirit of St. Louis, these

cardboard crafts and costumes are sure to be amazing.

The Races will begin at 10 am on Saturday July 20th at Sandy Beach on Greers Ferry

Lake in Heber Springs, AR.

Boat races will begin at 10:00 a.m., with timed heats for both children and adults. The

Pride of the Fleet Prize will be awarded to the boat that best combines innovative

engineering with artistic design, while the Captain’s Award goes to the team with the

greatest spirit and crowd involvement. And of course, the Titanic Award is reserved for

the boat with the most dramatic sinking.

There’s plenty of additional fun planned for the day, with a treasure dig, watermelon eating

contest, and some new and exciting things all on the agenda. Enjoy the

spectacular surroundings of Heber Springs, a jewel of a town located just 60 miles

north of Little Rock, on the shores of Greers Ferry Lake and the Little Red River in the

foothills of the Ozark Mountains.

More information, including registration applications and additional activities for 2019

will be available soon on our Facebook Page.
