The calming waters of the Colorado River will transform into a pirate’s paradise during Laughlin’s 10th annual River Regatta on Saturday, Aug. 13.
Thousands of visitors will float a relaxing nine miles down the Colorado River.
This year’s theme, Pirates of the Colorado, invites attendees and teams to decorate their floats, rafts and inner tubes for a chance to win an array of exciting prizes.
Also getting into the swashbuckling spirit, residents along the river are invited to decorate their homes in the pirate theme for a chance to win prizes.
River Regatta participants will take off from Davis Camp and Community Park beginning at 7 a.m., with launches concluding at 1 p.m. Water enthusiasts will exit the river at Rotary Park and must be in line for the last shuttles by 5 p.m.
Early registration is $30 and is available until Friday, Aug. 5. Late registration will be from August 6-13 and is priced at $45.
