What are you doing this weekend?

Stockton’s 5th annual Bathtub Race is here and if you fulfill all the requirements, you will have the time of your life! First of all, all entries must be human powered, so no motors or other “cheats” are allowed. Second, your racing vehicle must be made of something that was not intended to be used as a water vessel. Boats, canoes, pontoons and rafts are out: buckets, bathtubs, bikes and bins are in. Of course, you must wear a life jacket and if you are under 18, an adult must accompany you. Otherwise there are no limits to your creativity and resourcefulness, so let your imagination fly – or sail? The event is held at Louis Park Boat Launch (Monte Diablo Avenue, Stockton) on Sunday, Aug. 24, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Check in time is 9 a.m. And remember, if you ain’t first you might as well be last… Price: FREE Learn more at
