UPDATED: Special Event: First Annual Zucchini Regatta

Join us at Cheverly Community Market this Saturday at 9:00 for our first annual Zucchini Regatta!  

Children under the age of 12 may buy a zuchini for $.50 from the Market tent. We'll have tools and supplies to carve out the middle (like a canoe) and insert drinking straw masts.  The best part: decorate your sail any way you want -- you want a lion boat? Go right ahead! A robot? Sounds good to us! A pack of princesses? Sure!

The boats will race in heats of two in our water shoots.  Kids can blow on the sails to move their boats along, but no touching once boats are in the water! The first one to the finish line will win a pirate-themed finger puppet for their vessel.  Didn't win but you think you have a better plan? Runners-up can get back in line to race again until you win!

UPDATE: Due to an emergency, we must reschedule the Zucchini Regatta for October 8. We look forward to seeing your creations in just a few weeks!
