There’s Still Time to Sign Up for Riverfest’s 4th Annual Regatta

Riverfest Regatta Cardboard Boat RacesThe Riverfest Regatta is not your typical boat race. The boats that will be racing down the Cumberland River Saturday morning, September 11th will be made of cardboard and a few other approved materials. Not only will teams be racing for bragging rights, but trophies will also be awarded to the first, second, and third place teams in each division.

The five divisions include Adult Open, Military, Business & Industry, City Department, and Church/Civic.
