Cape Coral Cardboard Boat Regatta Expects Record Numbers This Weekend

Hosted by The Rotary Club of Cape Coral, the Regatta gives clubs, businesses, schools and individuals the opportunity to get creative and build boats out of cardboard and race each other at the park. Each year the boats get more and more creative and outlandish, but somehow make their way from start to finish in boats that are patterned after dragons, canoes, and much more. This year 27 boats, a record number, will take to the water and show style and speed as they race two at a time around the course in the bimini at the park.

Neighborhood Watch Can't Become Complacent

We, the residents of Cape Coral, have much to be thankful for. At the top of the list is the safe city that we live in. Think about it, there are no areas within the city where one can not walk all hours of the day or night and not feel safe. How sweet it is, but it was not always this way. Think back a couple of years to 2005/06; our crime stats in many areas mirrored the higher national average. So what has made the difference from then to now? A very aggressive police force working hand in hand with very active neighborhood watches. OK, so what’s the problem?
