Fling into Fall Model Pumpkin Boat Competition

Penobscot Marine Museum Crescent
The model boats in Penobscot Marine Museum’s temporary exhibit, “Sailing Small: Small Boats, Big Ideas” are made of many different materials from paper to plastic. We challenge you to make a model boat out of a Pumpkin! Bring your model pumpkin boat to the Penobscot Marine Museum on Saturday October 6th to compete. PMM staff will judge entries using a point system based on size, composition, creative use of pumpkin, overall look, ability to float, and speed. The winner will receive 50% of the proceeds and the other 50% will go to the Penobscot Marine Museum to help support programming like this!
