This Saturday, July 14, Green Lake visitors are in for a treat as creativity, science and boatmanship join forces at the Lucerne Seafair Milk Carton Derby. Dozens of floating milk carton contraptions of all sizes and shapes, helmed by their makers, will compete for prizes and a winning title. A popular tradition since 1972, the event attracts watercraft built by kids, adults, families, schools and businesses, and is always an exciting salute to summer in Seattle. This year’s prizes include $3000 in prizes from Altitude Trampoline Park, Ivar’s, Sand Point Sailing, A la Mode Pies, Ezell’s Famous Chicken, and others.
Registration for boaters opens at 9 a.m., and the races begin at 10:30 a.m. Admission for non-participants is free. Vendor booths offering food, drinks and exhibits will be available near the racing site, which is staged this year so attendees can have better views from Green Lake Aqua Theatre. The Seafair Milk Carton Derby is presented by Safeway and Albertsons.
