The Pittsburgh Regatta

rebecca - Wednesday, August 2, 2017

With summer winding down, it’s a great time to celebrate the remaining warm days by attending the Three Rivers Regatta this weekend. It’s the 40th Anniversary of this three-day festival, and you’ll have the chance to get some good food, hear some great music and watch the river explode with activity.

Thanks to supportive community sponsors, the weekend festivities are dedicated to improving water safety and river recreation.

One of the biggest events to look out for this weekend is the Red Bull Flugtag. This event is organized by Red Bull and has competitors create home-made flying machines. These competitors then attempt to fly their machines. Previous inventions include flying tacos, Winnebago’s with wings, and even Snoopy and his gang. To test their abilities, the Red Bull team assembles a 22-foot high flight deck from which on the inventions fly off and into the river. This event will start Friday and Saturday at 10:30 a.m. on Art Rooney Ave. Red Bull will also be hosting their Air Force skydiving show during the regatta.

There will also be performances by Easton Corbin and Smash Mouth this weekend.

Make it a plan this weekend to head on down to the North Shore from Friday, August 4th through Sunday, August 6th and be a part of the experience. Stroll along the River Walk where you can admire all the unique boats out on the river.  As you get closer to Heinz Field, enjoy the music from the main stage while grabbing a bite from some of the vendors. It’s a weekend you won’t want to miss!
