We're racing through history!
4 Culture, in collaboration with artist A Gual Culley and the City of Kenmore, would like to invite you to:
The Sammamish Slough Boat Races (1933-1976)
Public Lecture, Classic Boat Show and Origami Boat Building Workshop
Come listen to series of lectures from local boat racing historians, past "Slough Boat Race" drivers, as well as community members that were spectators of the event. Look at videos and photographs pulled from the archives of the Kenmore, Bothell and Redmond historical societies, wander to the "Classic Boat Show," and see the Unlimited Hydroplane The Oh Boy Oberto, as well as other classic hydroplane race boats.
Bring the whole family: Create and decorate your very own origami boat with artist A Gaul Culley.
