Build your own boat race set for June 8

The Sixth Annual Wreck & Roll Festival Anything That Floats Boat Race will be held on June 8 at the city of Dunkirk Pier. The theme for this year’s race is Vikings of Chadwick Bay.

Registration will begin at 1 p.m. and the race will start at 2 p.m. The competition features two divisions: an Open Division with unlimited team members and a Minimal Division with two or fewer individuals. Clubs, individuals and families interested in participating should contact Dunkirk Festivals at 366-9876 or for complete rules, registration form and pictures of previous years’ races. Cost of registration is $10 per team.

The Build Your Own Boat Race will kick off Saturday’s Wreck & Roll events, which include a Chicken Wing Cook-Off, live music from top national bands, Kids Zone with bouncers, and much more. This festival, like all Dunkirk Festivals, is offered to the public free of charge thanks to the generous support of our corporate partners: DFT Communications, Dunkirk Chamber of Commerce, Coors Light, Cott Beverages and National Grid.
