Join the fun in the first Cardboard Regatta hosted by Heritage Harbor and Easter Seals of LaSalle & Bureau Counties! Build a boat using cardboard and duct tape then launch it in the marina! Compete against other teams to win the “coveted” regatta trophy in two age categories; 8-14 years old and 15 years and up. Trophies also awarded for boats exhibiting “Easter Seals Spirit” and “Most Creative Design”. Even in defeat, you can still win a trophy for “The Most Spectacular Sinking”! Boat judging starts at 10:30 am and the races start at noon. Entry forms available at Handy Foods, Financial Plus, SOCU, Heritage Harbor and Easter Seals.
If you prefer to stay on dry land, you can still be part of the race day fun by “adopting” a rubber duck to race in the Duck Derby and win up to $500! Tickets on sale at the Easter Seals Center or on race day. Tickets are $5 for one duck or $25 for six. The Duck Derby gets underway at 4 pm.
But we have even more fun in store! Stone Jug BBQ will be cooking and serving up their amazing ribs, homemade coleslaw, baked beans and corn bread. Carry-outs available.
Chris Farrell performs from 2-5 pm.
All proceeds benefit Easter Seals of LaSalle & Bureau Counties Therapy Services Department.
