USS Fort Worth Whatever Floats Your Boat Regatta at Panther Island Pavilion
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.
Free for spectators. Participant registration is $25 per individual or $125 per team.
