It was a picture perfect day for a boat race on the beautiful banks of Bear Lake in North Muskegon. August 10th saw the Cardboard Boat Regatta brought to you by J. Nedeau Realtor. We were contacted months ago about the idea of being part of a build your own boat event as part of the North Muskegon Family Funfest. We jumped at the chance because who doesn't love a tired and true event where a little innovation and some willingness to sink or swim can prove to be a pretty good time!
It started off with a boat show at the beverage tent! Competitors lined their boats up for the Peoples Choice Awards. Not all of the boats were present, but a nice showing none the less while Yard Sale Underwear rocked the crowd. Some boats had yet to even be built....so....that's another story. Teams arrived, rules were set and we took a few minutes to meet up with the competitors, talk a little strategy and smack and then get ready meet up on the beautiful shores of Bear Lake.
We've put it all together in a little video that you'll have some fun watching. Take a look at the Cardboard Boat Regatta sponsored by J. Nedeau Realtor at the North Muskegon Family Funfest.
The City of North Muskegon is filled with friendly and awesome people who really know how to put on a great time. Events from the Art Fair, to the Taste of North Muskegon...the Foam Pit looked like a great time...the Beverage Tent the massive parade and more...the North Muskegon Family Fun Fest is a staple of our area when it comes to Summer fun. Our thanks to the teams, the spectators, J. Nedeau Realtor and everyone involved in the fun! We hope you enjoyed the recap of the Cardboard Boat Regatta!
