Seafair Derby Day

 
Seafair Derby Day highlights the Seafair Milk Carton Derby and Stand Up Paddleboard Competition!

Seafair Milk Carton Derby
Mark your calendars now for the 2015 Seafair Milk Carton Derby. Nearly 100 colorful milk carton boats of all shapes and design will compete on the waters of Green Lake for fantastic prizes and bragging rights. The Derby is highlighted by a full day of "competition" as children, adults, families and businesses build milk carton watercraft for show and racing. The day culminates in the ultimate competition between milk carton watercraft and Stand Up Paddleboarders: the Seafair Battle for the Paddle!

Seafair Stand Up Paddleboard Competition
The Seafair Stand Up Paddleboard competition will take place at the same time as the Seafair Milk Carton Derby! Watch for details on the 2015 event in the Spring.
