The Lucerne Seattle Milk Carton derby is held annually at Greenlake and features boats made entirely of milk cartons.

I’m going to sound like the old-timer I’m getting to be and say, “I remember back in my day when events didn’t have corporate sponsors and the milk carton race wasn’t so thick with crowds.” As a kid, I always had a goal to build my own milk carton boat, but never achieved it — but one year someone actually gave me their simple milk carton boat to commandeer. Like everything else in Seattle this event has grown…but is at least where it has always been — at Greenlake.

The event is free to attend, but there is an entry fee for boats starting at $25.
