Cardboard Boat Races Returning to Manchester Whitewater Park

Cardboard boat races will be returning to the Manchester Whitewater Park next weekend.

The Franklin Street Brewery will be hosting their annual River Runner Regatta on Saturday, August 20th.

That’s owner Kyle Sands, who says anyone is welcome to build a boat to race down the Whitewater Park.

Or if you don’t have time to build a boat, they’ve got a new option for you this year – you can buy a boat.

Sands says he’s seen some pretty good cardboard boats come through since they started the event a few years ago.

And surprisingly, most of them make it down the river.

Prizes will be awarded to the winners. You can sign up that day or register ahead of time – just stop into the brewery for a registration form or go to

The River Runner Regatta starts at 2 pm that Saturday, August 20th at the Manchester Whitewater Park. Everyone is welcome to come out and watch.
