Corrugated cardboard, duct tape, caulk and glue are on the list of suggested supplies for the Avon Recreation Center’s second annual Cardboard Boat Regatta, which takes place on Saturday, Aug. 25. The free event, with more than $1,000 in prizes up for grabs, is open to children and adults. Competitors will navigate their cardboard craft in Nottingham Lake, and judges will determine winners in the categories of fastest boat, most creative design, most dramatic sinking and crowd favorite.

Registration for the free event begins at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, and the regatta will begin at 11 a.m. A complete list of guidelines is available at

Awards, a raffle and a pop-up strings concert will follow the race. The concert will take place at the Avon Performance Pavilion Event Terrace beginning at noon.
