Aquatic Center hosts first ever cardboard boat race
Kids in Kirksville put their creative skills to the test for a cardboard boat race that took place for the first time at the Aquatic Center.
Around 10 kids participated in making a cardboard boat and racing it to the finish line on Saturday.
Assistant of the event, Scott Meredith says because of the high turnout, this will probably become an annual event.
The Aquatic Center plans on hosting another boat race in the winter.
While no date has been set in stone, Meredith says next time adults will be able to participate as well as kids.
“We’ll probably try and have an adult race as well this winter. You know, let them have some fun also."
