Whatever Floats Your Boat: Join Us for the 13th Annual Lakeland Cardboard Boat Challenge

Lakes Education/Action Drive (LE/AD), in partnership with Lakeland Clean & Beautiful, the City of Lakeland and Lakeland Vision present Lakeland’s 13th Annual Cardboard Boat Challenge and Lakes Festival on Saturday, September 10, 2016, from 8:30 a.m. – noon at the Lake Hollingsworth boat ramp (race starts at 10 a.m.). This event is designed to help raise public awareness about our lakes and the precious resources we have in our area.

This event is for the entire community. We will have exhibitors, children's activities, food vendors, live music and a boat race!

People actually get into the boats they build?  Yes, and they float too!  Teams make boats out of cardboard and duct tape, then race around a marked course on beautiful Lake Hollingsworth.  If you've never seen a Cardboard Boat race, come out and watch, or better yet, register a team and participate!

Although we provide the utmost luxury at Episcopal Catholic Apartments in Winter Haven, Florida, we realize that you need to get out and socialize with those in your surrounding community. This event gives you the chance to do just that! Don’t hesitate to attend today!

Event Time/Date:
Friday, September 9, 2016—6:00 PM

Event Venue Location:
Lake Hollingsworth
920 Lake Hollingsworth Drive
Lakeland, Florida 33803
