Summertime means boat races in the Tri-Cities! Founded in 1966, the Tri-City Water Follies is Eastern Washington's largest weekend festival. The 2022 Columbia Cup will mark the 57th time unlimited Hydroplanes have raced on the Columbia River.
Our entertainment lineup includes Unlimited Hydroplane Racing, a spectacular Over the River Airshow, and Kids Zone activities featuring bouncy houses, face painting, arts & crafts and more. Take a pit tour to see the boats up close, or attend an autograph session for both the race boat drivers and pilots from the HAPO Over the River Airshow. There is something for everyone at the Tri-City Water Follies.
