Start chugging that milk – the Milk Carton Derby returns July 14th

It’s not too late to get your registration in for the 42nd Annual Denny’s Seafair Milk Carton Derby, held at Green Lake Park this year on Saturday, July 14th beginning at 10 a.m.   The traditional event will include around 100 milk carton boats competing for $10,000 in prizes.

For those of you wanting a last-minute entry, there is no charge to compete in the racing, military, and open categories.  There’s a $250 entry fee for the Groups/Commercial category, which allows the vessel to race with a name/logo on it.

Children as young as eight can participate, as there is a special “youth” category for ages 8-13.  Besides the boats, there will be land-lubber activities also: displays and exhibits, the Seafair pirates, Seafair princesses, and Seagals will all be on hand.

For full details and the rules & regulations of building your craft, visit the event’s website here.  To see more of last year’s boats like the one below, visit my photo post from last year here.
