Registration underway for boatville drag races
With all of the festivities on the horizon, the boatville drags are going to be yet another hook, line and sinker for great entertainment during the annual Summer Celebration.
Ken Hendrickx, founder of the boatville drags, said the idea came from a similar festival idea from Menahga. In Menahga, the community has bar stool races that bring in a lot of traffic for the town. In order to get the same amount of traffic going through NY Mills, Hendrickx tried to think of an idea that was similar to the bar stools, but involved boats. With not much water around, the idea of a pedal boat was born.
Over the years, the boatville drags have been a success and continue to bring people in.
“They started out with a bang and continue to be a fan favorite,” said Hendrickx, “It brings in large crowds at a low cost entertainment.”
Robb Reed, C&C President, added to the importance of boatville drags to the Summer Celebration. read entire story. . . .
