In Carbondale, SIU’s 49th Great Cardboard Boat Regatta is this Saturday, April 20th at Campus Lake. Everyone is welcome to join in the fun at the family friendly event, either as a participant or a spectator.Races begin at 1 p.m. as participants take on the unique challenge of figuring out just how many ways a few pieces of cardboard can be cut, folded and transformed to create a unique watercraft that will hopefully make it through a course around the lake.
