Join us on April 22nd May 13th for a day full of fun!

Each Spring we celebrate our school and our community with the Maria Montessori School Regatta and Duck Race. The festival includes children’s games, take and make art, grilled food, kayak rides in the pond and much more. The Duck Race and the Wacky Boat Contest dominate the afternoon. In the duck race, families sponsor a duck in a mass rubber duck race on the pond, with $100 going to the sponsor of the winning duck. In an event unlike you have seen before, families’ team up to build Wacky Boats using only cardboard and duct tape. The teams then choose a member to climb in the boat and race it on the pond. In-between all that – children’s games, live music, and good food!

Introducing the Inaugural Boat Builders Race

We would like to invite you to join us and Show Us What You’ve Got!

Individuals, families, businesses and organizations are ALL invited to register a TEAM…construct a boat (made of only cardboard, tape and/or approved waterproofing) and then bring it to our Regatta to race against other competitors on the Wolf River Harbor.
