4th of July Watermelon Races

A sentimental favorite for participants and spectators!  Line up along the dam starting approximately 1 hour before the race so your boat may be checked by the Zebra Mussel Committee.  Only Lake Waukomis watercraft with a current Zebra Mussel sticker may participate.  Separate heats for canoes/kayaks and paddleboats. Coastguard approved flotation is encouraged for each participant; kids     under 7 years old are required by Missouri law to wear their life jackets during the entire water activity. Watermelons donated by the event sponsors, Danny and JoEllen Spini (Global Produce). Questions?  Call Event Leader Dale Crouch (389-9984).
