The Great LEGO Boat Race V is a Great Success.

Our fifth annual boat race had a perfect day, creative boats, and our first ever digital entry. Be sure to check out all three pages from the navigation above. FOX News showed up, the weather was perfect, the competition intense. Boats were weighed in and placed in the pit area for judging. Then one-by-one they launched their boats from the pool deck.  All photos by Janet Mercer. Thanks!
