CALLING all boat owners or creatives who want to give boat making a go: the Somerton Hotel is the place to be on Saturday.
The pub is hosting a fun event aimed around the floating vessels.
Those who love their boats can show off their vessels in the 'Show and Shine' event, and those who simply want a laugh can attempt to make their own for the on-the-ground boat race.
Pub manager Annette Mackley said the novelty race featured anything "as long as it looks like a boat".
Entrants will then race their homemade crafts around the outside of the pub for the chance to win prizes.
There will also be jumping castles for the youngsters, slushies, burgers for lunch, and live music from 6pm.
Registrations for the race begin at 11am, and the race will then begin at 2pm, before judging occurs at about 4pm.
All proceeds from the entry fee will go to the Manilla Hatchery.
For more information on the event, contact the pub on 0447 115 984.
