Cardboard, A Flowing River, A Little Tape And A Race??? AMAZING!!!

Well, we have been out for a few days with the 
pesky "day job." But, as promised, we made it to New Richmond on the Ohio last weekend for the annual "Cardboard Boat Regatta."  AMAZING!!

This event is world class, fun and will only continue to grow. We have heard that other folks are copying the event, but nothing will match the event in this little river town. The guys at the "World's only Cardboard Boat Museum" are volunteers who literally plan over a year to stage this event. While we heard they may pop a few brews at time, that is well-deserved with all the work, creativity and spirit they bring to this event. We are mixing in a few photos that we have (only with permission) snatched from a few Facebook and other pages....

It seems like everyone in town and around the region partake in this annual event. The Front Street Cafe had a cool Saucer/Teacup boat (not too fast but fun), Snappy Tomato Pizza had a cool boat and so did Television channel 12-WKRC. Of course the Green Kayak Market and Eatery had, you guessed it, a green kayak--it even won it's heat.

The coolest part of this event is to witness the creativity of some of the folks who, in our humble opinion, are true artists. Check out the "Row Man Chariot" above. There was also a beautiful "hot rod", a duck boat, alligator, Chris-craft look alike and the ever-popular riverboat.....You need to get out to this Event which is held every August in New Richmond on the Ohio. This was, we were told, year 21 for the regatta!!!
