Kitty Litter Cardboard Box RaceFebruary 18, 2014
A fun, free, February Vacation tradition for kids. Build your own “vessel” out of cardboard boxes and go head-to-head in a series of heats held at the base of Wildcat.
Rules: The bottom of the vessel must consist entirely of cardboard--no duct tape or plastic surfaces. We do not supply cardboard or building material for this event. All vessels will be inspected to make sure they fit the standards prior to racing. Decorating is encouraged. After the event, all entries must be properly disposed of and we encourage participants to recycle their boxes.
