Events, commentary, reports about Long Lake NY. Real Adirondack Experience

Cardboard Boat Races

Float night is on Friday, July 16th at 5pm on the Long Lake Town Beach. What is float night? An opportunity to hop on your forbidden inflatable beach toys and swim at the town beach while red-cross certified lifeguards watch.

Enjoy live music by The Yod Squad and Eric Peter with Live Bait starting at 5pm.

There will be games and fun activities and the much anticipated “Cardboard Box” Race. Long Lake never found a cardboard box it didn’t like. Whether it’s in the middle of snowmobile season for Winter Carnival or in the middle of summer.

Long Lake will provide teams duct tape and cardboard and members can build a boat on site. The race goal, to sink the other teams while being the first one to cross the finish line. Get creative and make your own and bring it along. If you have paddles, we suggest you bring those too, and please bring your lifevests!

We always love a good competition in Long Lake and Friday night will be no exception.

Now if it rains… all bets are off. So please, have your weather machine charged and ready. No rain! If raining the music will be moving to the Mt. Sabattis Pavilion. Bring your floats anyway!
