WINONA LAKE — Onlookers filled Winona Lake for Canal Days festivities on Saturday, Aug. 26.
At 12:30 p.m. the annual Cardboard Boat Regatta began with a kids division aged 8 and under, followed by a youth division aged 8-17 and finally, an adult division aged 18 and up.
The Cardboard Boat Regatta began seven years ago with only four boats and has only grown since then with all the proceeds going to Fellowship Mission. This year the Canal Regatta had 28 boats sign up to participate.
