The Lake Anne Cardboard Boat Regatta is a community event designed to foster a sense of Reston pride, celebrate the family-friendly atmosphere of historic Lake Anne Plaza, and support the Reston Historic Trust & Museum. There is no charge for watching the race!

Participating teams of all ages will construct and decorate their own life-size cardboard boats. These boats will then take to the water in timed heats with team members rowing out to a designated buoy and back to the docks at Lake Anne Plaza. Awards will be given out after all races are completed around 4 pm.

This years event promises to break the record for the largest cardboard regatta ever held, come down to Lake Anne and enjoy the fun, friendly competition as well as the fabulous failures!!
