Village of Fox Lake to cancel Cardboard Boat Race

FOX LAKE – As part of Phase 4 guidelines within the Restore Illinois Plan, Gov. JB Pritzker has strongly advised event organizers to cancel events with more than 50 people.

Therefore the Village of Fox Lake has made the difficult decision to cancel the Cardboard Boat Race. The event was scheduled to be on Sunday, Aug. 16, with the race starting at noon at Lakefront Park Building, 71 Nippersink Blvd.

This popular event has historically brought in more than 200 spectators and participants each year. At this time, there is no plan to reschedule the event due to the continued uncertainty.

Please call Anne Marrin at 847-587-3942 with any questions.
