Clermont Cardboard Classic

Posted on Sunday, July 22, 2018 at 1:28 am

The Lake County Rowing Association is having a first annual “Clermont Cardboard Classic” (cardboard boat race) on August 4th. This will be the best event of the summer!
Gather your friends, design an awesome cardboard watercraft, build it and we will see you on the water for a regatta like no other! There will be races for all ages with prizes. You can vote for your favorite teams. We will have food trucks and vendors, a splash pad for the kids, beer garden and a free concert featuring Switch Back to the Eighties.
Get creative and build a cardboard boat! There are so many ideas such as a business, personal vessel, non profit, schools, young kids, etc. There are photos and videos on the FB page with ideas from other events.
We will be at the August 3rd First Friday Food Truck event downtown Clermont with some of the boats to help promote and to do some voting.
For complete information and registration: or call 352.552.1103
The registration to sign up is currently under construction and will go live the first week of July.
