Got paper? Got folding skills? Think you can make it float? Those are the lofty challenges that bring out the best in the friendly competition of the Paper Yacht Challenge that’s coming up on Thursday, June 26th from 5:00-7:30 at City National Plaza Fountain at 5th & Flower Streets in DTLA.
Whether you come to win or to watch, this is one of the best summer afternoons of the season in DTLA! If you’re considering entering, here’s a peak at what your competition was up to last year: It’s not just about a pretty boat–it’s what makes it across the water that matters! For more insight, check out the video from last year.
Along with the race, participants compete in a nautical costume contest, enjoy live entertainment, eat tasty treats from local participating restaurants, and bid on silent auction items.
This fun Downtown Los Angeles community event is where ingenuity, enthusiasm, paper, water, and wind will combine to raise money for a wonderful cause: Hope Street Family Center, a community health, education and recreation resource of California Hospital Medical Center.
Entry fees are: Student – $10 per boat Non-student/Individual – $35 per boat Company – $50 per boat
