40th Annual and Final – Great Dock Canoe Race
May 14, 2016, 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
Come watch the action for the 40th Annual Great Dock Canoe Race. Wildly decorated canoes compete in multiple races in a celebration of the end of the busy winter season and the start of summer. Each year the race has a theme, which serves as the inspiration for the decorated canoes that compete for the best-dressed $1,000 prize. This year, the theme will be “The Last Dance,” evoking the disco era in which the Great Dock Canoe Race was first launched (1977) and coincidentally a famous 1970’s Donna Summer song.
