Bullhead City River Regatta

by Evan Fuchs on August 11, 2009

If floating on the Colorado River with a few thousand friends sounds like your idea of a good time, you’ve got to check the Bullhead City River Regatta on Saturday, August 29th.


The float launches from Bullhead City Community Park at 9 am (check-in begins at 7 am) and winds 8 miles down the Colorado River, ending at Rotary Park. After party with food and entertainment!

Bullhead City Birthday Bath -n- Splash

No regatta is complete without a theme, right? Last year it was Pirates of the Colorado.

This year it’s Bullhead City’s 25th birthday celbration:

Think PARTY! (Cakes, balloons, presents, party games).

Think HISTORY! (what do you remember about the 1980s?)

Be sure to check out the Questions & Answers and Things to Know page from the official site. You’ll get all the details you need, like where to park, how much it costs, how to register your float, and so on.

Oh, and don’t forget about the Ye Gotta Regatta party on Friday night before the float from 5-10 pm. Best Bartender Contest, too? Yep.

The Regatta is GROWING so Register in Advance!

In only it’s third year, the annual Bullhead City River Regatta is growing exponentially. The 900 attendees in 2007 grew to 4,000 plus last year. They are now expecting more than 9,000 people. Holy Float!

Advanced registration for the float is strongly encouraged: Bullhead City River Regatta registration.

Are you a Floater?

If you’ve made the regatta float (or any other Colorado River float for that matter), I’d love to hear your story or see some photos. Please leave a comment or drop me an email.

My good friend and father of my daughter drowned at the river regatta in 2010. He was a good swimmer and not under the influence of alcohol. Just want to put the message out to all those that attend this type of event on the river…. the river is an extreme force of mother nature and should never be taken lightly when it comes to safety. Wear a life vest! God bless
