Float Your Boat

Float Your Boat is Saturday, April 27, 2019, at Bass Pro Shops Lake

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 signature event for The Food Bank and Columbia, Mo.

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 most creative, best use of a theme, ugliest boat and more! There is also a “Titanic Award for the Best Sinking” for teams whose boats do not make it to shore.  See a list of this year’s Judging Categories here.

The coveted People’s Choice Award is for the team that raises the most money for The Food Bank leading up to the event..
