Les Frères Bros, Mario and Luigi, paddle their hand-made cardboard boat and try to stay afloat while collecting floating “points” at Les Cartonfolies on Lac Témiscouata.

You’ve probably heard of a soap-box derby, but have you ever heard of a cardboard-boat derby? Apparently they are all the rage on Lac Témiscouata, in southeastern Quebec! 

Lise Lafond, a frequent contributor to the QCT, who is spending the summer at the lake, shared this report with us.
