All prospective Noahs take note: There is still time to enter the Fourth Annual Thru the Chute Boat Race and River Expo set for Saturday, April 5, at the city of New Braunfels Tube Chute.
The New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Department, in partnership with New Braunfels Yacht Club, invites contestants to design and build their own cardboard boats and race them down the chute in the festive event.

“In response to input from participants, categories for entries have been expanded for this year’s race, to include both Novice and Expert classifications,” said Robin Kunkel, recreation manager. Event registration is $45 per vessel until the day of the event and there is no cost for the public to view the often hilarious event.
Thru the Chute is hosted by the City of New Braunfels Park and Recreation Department, and is sponsored in part by the New Braunfels Yacht Club, Texas State University and HEB.
