Haines City Public Works Department in partnership with LE/AD (Lakes Education/Action Drive) is holding a community event like no other!

This event helps raise awareness about Haines City lakes and valuable water resources and how we all must play a role in protecting them. People can reduce their impact on the environment through the lifestyle choices they make every day. Celebrate our lakes and join the fun!

To build a boat out of cardboard and duct tape, and then put 2 people inside to race around a course, be the first to make it across the finish line without sinking.

Haines City Cardboard Boat Challenge
• On-Site Built Registration 8 A.M. – 8:30 A.M.
• Cardboard Boat Building On-site 8:30 A.M. – 10:00 A.M.
• Pre-Built Registration 9:00 A.M. – 9:30 A.M.
• Race Starts at 10:00 am

To reinforce the reason behind this event, the theme of the cardboard boats are a “Lakes” awareness. Each team must name their boat with a Lakes awareness theme, and turn in a short bio explaining the name choice to be announced before launch. The teams create a boat out of cardboard and duct tape, and race a course on Lake Eva!

Environmental Exhibitors at the Seven Rivers Festival will provide children’s activities, information on ways to protect our lakes, waterways and other environmental fun facts.

Teams can register online at
