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 take to the water to soak up sun and fun as they 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. For more information or to register, please visit www.bullheadregatta.com.
