Calling all sailors! Join us for the 15th Annual Cardboard Boat Races! Held every year at Fort Hardy Park in Schuylerville, NY, the Cardboard Boat Race is a fun and creative community day on the Hudson River. Participants are invited to build on-site the day of the races or bring a boat they’ve been working on! Challenge friends, family, co-workers…and let’s see who wins one of the coveted awards: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards 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!
