Have you ever thought about racing a cheesebox? I’m sure most people haven’t but that’s the plan for June 3rd, after Celebrate the River in Eganville. Chair of the Eganville and Area Community Development Group, Don Bishop, says that cleaning out the old creamery building in Eganville led to this idea.
Bishop says only 500 will be sold this year to allow for ‘The Great Canadian Cheesebox Race’ to be an annual event for at least a couple years. He also says there are incentives to take the race seriously.
Cheeseboxes will be on sale for $10 each, and the money goes towards a dock to be built in Eganville as part of the downtown revitalization.
