Seafair Milk Carton Derby

July 13,  2013  - www.seafair.com

 

What a blast - participate or spectate

     Of course if you are the girl to the left been smacked in the face with the paddle you may want to be a spectator in the next Seafair Milk Carton Derby. What a test of creativity. All the boats must be made of at least 50 milk cartons, but the real test comes when they put their boats in the water for the first time. Some of them like the Wheel of Fortune below never do float, which makes it difficult to win a race on water. The races are broken up into 5 categories in 2 divisions. They race for prizes worth $10,000.

     The 35,000 spectators have fun on the beautiful Green Lake shores with a pie eating contest, peanut toss, Mooing contest, plus visits by the Seafair Clowns, Sea Gals, and the Seafair Royalty just to name a few.
