Six Flags Hurricane Harbor is hosting the 23rd Annual Cardboard Boat Regatta for River Legacy Parks on April 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The annual fundraiser for the City of Arlington’s 1,300-acre urban park and its sister park River Legacy Parks East, is loaded with fun and amazement as the cardboard boats take to the water in an attempt to stay afloat long enough to cross the finish line first (or finish at all)!
If you’ve never been to a cardboard boat regatta, this is a must-see event, full of challenge (at least if you’re a sailor), laughter, and fun for everyone. Races are held in several categories, from one- to 10-man (or woman) crews, boats built on site or elsewhere, and “safe” sailing opportunities for children.
Apart from the races, there are other activities designed to amuse and entertain everyone, including the whale sail (where you put miniature rubber whales into the water and cheer them home), and the mini boat regatta (where personal power moves a pinewood sailboat), Hook’s Lagoon, face painting, and Bubble Play.
Whether you want to be captain of your own ship, a crew member, or a spectator, this event delivers a wonderful day of entertainment while helping to support the nature, wildlife, programs, and classes at River Legacy Parks.
For complete information about the races, boat requirements, and costs of the Cardboard Boat Regatta, visit River Legacy Parks website, or call 817-860-6752.
Grab some cardboard, build and register your boat, or mark your calendar to make sure you don’t miss this day of fun at Hurricane Harbor. You never forget it, and you’ll never want to miss it again!
