Milk Carton Derby "UP!"


Milk Carton Derby "UP!"

This was one of many fun entries in the annual Seafair Milk Carton Derby at Greenlake on Saturday. The crew of entry with an "UP!" theme and another entry had a close encounter during the parade of boats. It is not evident from the photo, but all the Derby entries float on hundreds of milk cartons or jugs, which in this case are under the platform they built. Others were constructed with cartons visible. It was a hot day, so being out on the water was even more fun. More shots at my Flickr site.

Heehee, sweet!
I still want Disney to come out with a lamp using the Up! house. Imagine the balloons as the lampshade. :D

In the milk carton boat races here in Minneapolis, the boats don't just float on milk cartons - they are pretty much all made of milk cartons. We had a house from UP last year - see my photo of it at http://picasaweb.google.com/julie.ritenour/MCBoats7192009#5493167251892412850
