The 2017 Riverboat Races are coming to Whitecourt this weekend for the Carlan Cup. The races will take place on Saturday and Sunday when over 30 teams will compete. Whitecourt and Peers will each have a team, some teams are expected to come from the United States as well. Karey Crawford, Whitecourt’s team captain, says its fairly easy to get involved with riverboat racing.
There will be a shuttle service running on both days this weekend. A public show and shine takes place Friday night at the boat lodge.
