Cardboard Boats Try To Stay Afloat

Labor Day Weekend may signal the end of boating season, but it's also time for the annual IVY Club Invitational Cardboard Boat Races in Peoria Heights.

Teams have to construct vessels made completely out of cardboard.

The goal is to stay afloat to the finish line.

Prizes are given out for first, second, and third place in the races.

Teams can also win prizes for their boat displays before they go in the water.

Proceeds from the boat races benefit the Central Illinois Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.

The IVY Club is located at 5102 N. Galena Road in Peoria Heights.
