Pittsburgh – July 2010 – Ya Gotta Regatta

The Pittsburgh Regatta occurs each year around July 4th. Held at the point of the three rivers (Ohio, Monongahela, and Allegheny for those keeping score), the view of the events on the Allegheny is impressive, with the skyscrapers of downtown as the backdrop.

First up this day – Dragon Boat Races
