June 26th is KC’s 2nd Annual Trashboat Regatta on the Missouri River. The goal is to make a river-worthy watercraft out of reused, recycled, and found materials. The vessel must either be bicycle-powered in the water or towed to the river by bicycle.
The Regatta starts at Kaw Point, ends downriver with a big picnic, prizes for the best boats, and a bike ride back to Kaw Point. For those who might be squeamishness about floating down the Missouri River on homemade boats, there will also be a bike ride parallel to the Regatta.
