The Royal Rosarians' Milk Carton Boat Race
Sunday June 23, 2019, Westmoreland City Park
A classic Rose Festival event and family-friendly community tradition dating back to 1973, the Milk Carton Boat Race returns in 2019 for a spectacle you won’t want to miss. Children and adults race and show off their handmade, human-powered boats that float only by means of recycled milk cartons and jugs. Creatively-constructed watercraft will compete in nine categories, with one entry earning a place in history by winning the new People’s Choice Award.
Admission is free for spectators and participants. There is no cost to enter a boat in the race.  Festivities take place at the historic Westmoreland Casting Pond in the Sellwood Neighborhood of Southeast Portland. 

5 simple steps to participate this year:
2. Design and build your boat and give it a name.
3. Register online. 
4.  Have all boat riders sign a Waiver and bring them with you on race day.
5.  On race day bring your boat, waivers and enthusiasm.  Check in and boat inspection opens at 9:30 am. Onsite registration is also available from 9:30-10:30 am.
