The annual salute to Pittsburgh’s river recreation will soon commence, as this weekend’s 41st EQT Pittsburgh Three Rivers Regatta launches on the Allegheny River Aug. 3-5.

A festival celebrating everything from powerboats to jet ski races, anything that floats - or doesn’t, the water events are just part of the fun. Family activities, a Kids Zone, food vendors, fireworks, a 150-ton sand sculpture and music will all entertain the expected 700,000 spectators, organizers say.
