Boat Races

Take a journey back in time to the days when sternwheelers graced the Ohio River by attending the sternwheeler races on Sunday afternoon. Sit along the riverbank and cheer on your favorite boats as the Captains line up to win bragging rights to this year’s “Captain James E Sands” Memorial Races.

Sternwheelers will start down river and finish in front of the cheering crowd lining the riverbank. The competition is fierce between the captains and victory whistles will resound through the valley.
