Spectators enjoyed the Delta Thunder VI speed boat races, put on by the Rivertown Jamboree, both Saturday and Sunday. Plus, the tall ship Lady Washington , docked behind the former Humphrey’s restaurant, featured both on-deck walking and river cruising tours.
Although delayed by high winds on Saturday, the speed boat races were under way about 4:00 p.m. and continued on Sunday morning and afternoon to the delight of the participants, spectators, sponsors and promoters.
