Float Your Boat



Float Your Boat is an innovative and exciting way to support The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri while having a blast with family and friends. Held every spring, this event has become a community favorite and an important fundraiser for The Food Bank.

Teams are challenged to construct boats using only cardboard and duct tape that they will race across Bass Pro Shops Lake on the day of the event. Prizes are awarded for creativity, speed, theme and more! There is also a “Titanic Award for the Best Sinking” for teams whose boats do not make it to shore.
