Chimney Cove, a lake community on Lake Wedowee in eastern Alabama (Randolph County), will host the 3rd Annual Boat Show. The weekend is full of events, including the boat show, arts and crafts, numerous food vendors, a motorcycle ride fund-raiser, live music and the popular Paddlin’ 4 Paws Cardboard Boat Regatta Races (nearly 50 entries and growing). The Paddlin’ 4 Paws event will take place on Saturday, May 22nd, starting at 1 pm and is being billed as the South’s largest cardboard boat race.
For those who haven’t had the time to build a cardboard boat in time for the races this weekend, a cardboard boat is being auctioned off an hour before the races begin. (The Buy A Boat Auction)

The Randolph County Animal Shelter will have a booth at the event and t-shirts for sale. While they will not have animals on-site to adopt (due to concerns of animals getting over-heated), a photo adoption book will be available for viewing at the booth. The shelter has been open for two and a half years and often operates at full capacity. The shelter is working to raise funds to open a spay and neuter clinic to help with pet overpopulation.
