16th Annual Cardboard Boat Races

16th Annual Cardboard Boat Races

SCHUYLERVILLE — On Saturday, August 13, the Hudson Crossing Park in Schuylerville hosted the 16th annual Cardboard Boat Races. Held every year at Fort Hardy Park in Schuylerville, the Cardboard Boat Race is a fun and creative community day on the Hudson River.

The goal is simple - participants of all ages are tasked with building a boat made out of previously agreed upon materials, in this case corrugated cardboard, plastic or wooden brooms, duct tape, caulk and/or glue and non-oil-based paint (for style). The day is broken up by different age groups and categories and awards are handed out after the races. The awards include: first place, second place and third place for speed, the Titanic Award, Most Enthusiastic Crew, Judges Bribe Award (“Bribes” are considered donations to Hudson Crossing Park), People’s Choice, Overall Best in Show, and Most Sailors Left Afloat. 

Importantly, this day of fun is put on by Hudson Crossing Park whose mission is to tie environmental responsibility to economic revitalization, and to engage people of all ages in making informed choices for a sustainable future.
