Join us for a day of fun at the Chesterfield Family Aquatic Center, located at 16365 Lydia Hill Drive on Friday, July 10, featuring a Cardboard Boat Race and the Dive-In movie, Surf’s Up!

At 6:00 pm, we will kick off the first ever Cardboard Boat Race in Chesterfield.  Participants can build boats from corrugated cardboard and duct tape.  The boats will race in heats for time and the fees to enter are $10 per boat.  Life jackets must be worn by all participants, who will be divided into two age categories of 13 and under and 14 and above.  Everyone must haul away their boats or remains after the event.  For a comprehensive list of rules and regulations, visit www.chesterfield.mo.us/cardboard-boat-race-rules.html.  To register for the Cardboard Boat Race, visit www.chesterfield.mo.us/cardboard-boat-race-and-dive-in-movie.html or call 636.812.9500.

After a little friendly competition, relax in the water or poolside and enjoy the Dive-In Movie (Rated PG), Surf’s Up, beginning at dusk!  The movie features a behind-the-scenes look at the annual Penguin World Surfing Championship, and its newest participant, up-and-comer Cody Maverick.  The movie is free, open to the public and is presented by Renewal by Anderson.
