About This Activity

The Dairy Farmers of Oregon Milk Carton Boat Race offers a memorable day for participants and spectators alike. Children and adults race and show off their handmade boatsthat float only by means of recycled milk cartons and jugs. Creatively crafted watercraft will compete in five categories for the coveted Best in Show milk can trophy. Join us for a Sunday filled with family friendly entertainment and some spirited competition. It�s a chance to test the laws of buoyancy atop a pile of milk cartons, but also an opportunity to launch a piece of personality on the pond. Build a boat that�s creative or imaginative or one that�s sleek and slim for racing.All classes of racing boats compete for the Best in Show award. This award is given to a boat which is both fast and creatively designed. All Showboats will compete for Grand Showboat which will exhibit creative use of milk cartons/jugs as well as most unique and imaginative design.The Showboat class is for fun, creatively designed boats that will parade instead of race. There is no limit to size or length, but keep in mind all boats must be moved to and from the pond by means of man power.
