Shannon Sutlief Recommends

Fort Worth’s namesake naval combat ship will be celebrated with this quirky competition. Team members will use recycled items such as cardboard and plastic bottles to build a boat that they think will be able to float one crewmember across the Trinity River. There will be prizes for the first boat to cross the finish line, the most creative use of materials, the biggest failure (dubbed the Titanic award), best team costume and USS Fort Worth look-alike. Spectators can cheer on the boats and cast votes for the people’s choice award.

Teams of five will use recyclable items to build a boat that they think will be able to float one team member across the Trinity River. This annual event aims to promote camaraderie and clean rivers, parks and green living. There will be prizes for the fastest, most creative, biggest failure, best theme and USS Fort Worth look-alike. Spectators are welcome to cheer on the teams.

Free for spectators. Participant registration is $25 per individual or $125 per team.
