On Saturday, April 22, the Rotary Club of Cape Coral held its annual Cape Coral Cardboard Boat Regatta at Four Freedoms Park.

Despite a drizzly, overcast day, thousands came out once again to cheer on from the park's beach, as over 20 boats made their way through the Bimini Basin.

Using only cardboard, tape, paint, and a few other materials, boat builders once again amazed those in attendance with their creations.

This year's cardboard creations featured a myriad of designs and concepts including; a pirate ship, a giraffe, a Willy Wonka inspired boat, and much more.

As always, the highlight of the day was the event concluding "Free-For-All" that saw the majority of boats that participated in the day's races take to the water in a battle to sink everything in sight.

In addition to the boat races, the day also featured food, drinks, vendors, and live music from LCEC's Killa-Watts band, who entertained the crowd with nearly two hours of classic Rock 'n Roll.
