Racing Up the River

Do you know what the eyes at the head of the bumboat symbolise?

Early boatmen painted eyes on their bumboats as they believe the eyes would help to ‘see’ the danger ahead of the vessel.

Try your hand at folding paper boats, painting eyes on them and join the mini boat race at our doorstep.
