Tupperpalooza comes to Tupper Lake

— The first-ever Tupperpalooza will take place Aug. 4 and 5.

The free event starts at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Tupper Lake Municipal Park and will go until 10 p.m.

There will be craft and food vendors on hand, as well as activities for the entire family, including a New York craft beer tent, dunking booth, horseshoes, obstacle course, pie eating contest, sumo wrestling and climbing wall.

Several events will take place throughout the day, too.

A cardboard boat regatta will take to the water Saturday afternoon and will be judged in three categories: fastest team, team with the most spirit and most creative boat.

There will be a $100 prize for the winners in each category.

Cardboard watercrafts will be dropped off at the Municipal Park at 2 p.m., judging begins at 3 p.m. and the regatta begins 4 p.m.

The cost to enter the regatta is $25, and boats can be built the day of the race, with materials provided, for $30.

At 3 p.m., the 10th Mountain Division Band will entertain Tupperpalooza-goers with diverse styles including marching and ceremonial band, rock, jazz combo, dixieland band and brass quartet.

Rock band Bittersweet will take the stage and perform from 7-9:30 p.m.

Part race, part obstacle course, the 3.5-mile Tupperpalooza Warrior Run will test the mettle of all those who dare to enter on ug. 5 at the Big Tupper Ski Area.

Some of the hazards participants will be subjected to include a mud crawl, log jump, spider web, wrecking balls with tires and balance beam.

Trophies will be given to the top female, male and team finishers, and prizes will also be awarded to the best dressed team.

It is $50 for individuals to enter, $185 for teams of four.

Registration is from 8-9:30 a.m. and the race begins at 10 a.m.
