Cardboard Boat Regatta

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Every summer, hundreds of people in Cedar Rapids gather their friends, creativity and cardboard, and then they start building boats.

Saturday was the annual Cardboard Boat Regatta at Robbins Lake in Ellis Park.  The regatta has been a part of the freedom festival more than 15 years.

Dozens of teams race cardboard boats to see who won't sink, who's the fastest, and who has the most creativity.
