Every year the Dock at Crayton Cove host "The Great Dock Canoe Race" to celebrate the end of the Naples busy season, this has been a tradition for the past 32 years. Kids of all ages come out to have a great time and watch the events. When you arrive at the the Dock you will see contestants and spectators all dressed up in their best costumes that are linked somehow to that years theme, this years theme will be "Whatever Floats Your Boat". Contestants decorate their bodies and canoes to compete for the grand prize of $1,000 for the best interpretation of theme; the more elaborate the better. There are trophies given out for each of the 3 races that are held. The Ambitious Amateurs, Practically Professionals & the Next Generation (12-17 year old with his/her parent).

If you are going to be in Naples or Southwest Florida this May 10th I would highly recommend you going down to the Dock and watching this exciting community event.
