May 4, 2011 and May 2, 2012

The Wednesday before the Kentucky Derby is the Great Steamboat Race.

Originally started in 1963 as a race between the Belle of Louisville and the Delta Queen, the rival continued until 2009 when the Delta Queen was decommissioned. Now between the Belle of Louisville and the Belle of Cincinnati, this 6 mile trek up the Ohio River includes a series of obstacles - including picking up a surprise at Waterfront Park.

The boat with the highest score receives the coveted Silver Antlers and bragging rights! Groups can ride along and cheer for their boat.
