Ahoy, Mateys: It’s Time For The City Of Hollywood Cardboard Boat Race

September 14, 2023

Sailors, start your paddles, gather your mates and grab your duct tape to construct a sloop made entirely of cardboard! The City Of Hollywood’s Annual Cardboard Boat Race sets sail on Hollywood’s North Lake on Saturday, October 14th, 2023 at the Hollywood Marina at 700 Polk Street, Hollywood, Florida 33019.

Landlubbers will gather to cheer as the cardboard boat crews paddle in head-to-head competition for the coveted trophies in categories such as: “People’s Choice,” “Fastest Vessel,” “Most Creative Design” and “Most Spectacular Sinking.”

All boats must be built off-site and in advance. Check in begins at 8:00 a.m. and the races begin at 10:00 a.m. and continues until the last boat docks. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

See the innovative designs and witness the sheer will to win all the racers share. Be amazed and amused as they speed across the water in their quest for the ultimate prize -- the coveted trophy.
