      12th Annual July 4th Raft Race

      Thank you for choosing to participate in our 12th Annual Raft Race at Kingston City Park. This is a storied tradition that has been part of our Smokin The Water 4th of July celebration for over a decade! Competitors are racing not only for cash prizes and bragging rights, but rather a much more coveted award. The Golden Paddle. The golden paddle has been passed down for 12 years to the annual winner as they gain possession of the paddle for a calendar year. The paddle has been displayed in restaraunts, placed above mantles, and has even attended Christmas Eve candle light services. Some might call it man's best friend. And it can be yours if you have what it takes to stand victorious above all contestants in this years July 4th Raft Race at Kingston City Park. Thank you for participating!! Rules for the Race: 1) Raft must be homemade. No commercial water craft. 2) Total minimum size including down riggers and pontoons must be at least 4'x8'. 3) Must have at least a 3 person crew. 4) All crew members must wear a life jacket. 5) Raft must have an anchor. 6) Raft must be powered by paddle, paddle wheel, or snail (no motorized propulsion of any kind). 7) Raft must have a 50ft tow rope. 8) All fastener points cannot be exposed to damage other rafts. 9) The cost to enter is $10 per TEAM.
