Join the Minnesota Renewable Energy Society for the 25th Annual Solar Boat Regatta. As part of their school STEM education programs, 20 middle and high schools have built full sized solar boats that they race against each other. The boats are built so that their only energy source is the sun. The boats will conduct speed and slalom races in the morning and an endurance race in the afternoon. The awards ceremony will occur at 2:30.

LET’S GO FISHING will provide lake side seating on their covered pontoon boat throughout the race. The Minnesota Electric Auto Association will display various electric cars up at the pavilion.
