Five to the Five – Roostertails Return 5 Weeks From Today
Water Follies Weekend is set, the HAPO Columbia Cup and Air Show will dazzle the Tri-Cities once again, back in its traditional scheduling window of the last weekend in July, and in 2021 that's July 23rd-July 25th, marking the return of the rooster tails on the Columbia River after all hydroplane action was scuttled, never making it out of the Lampson Pits area, taking all 2020 off due to the pandemic.
The awe, the suspense and the excitement of boat race weekend all come back with a thundering crescendo as the H 1 Unlimited Hydroplanes are back to walk the sponsons and race deck to deck.
Grand Prix America Hydroplanes are returning thanks to Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 598 and their signatory contractors.
Vintage hydros will be announcing their presence with authority thanks to IBEW Electrical Workers Local 112 and the National Electrical Contractors Association.
And back by popular demand, the U.S. Air Force F-35 makes a screaming return to the shrieking delight of the fans! The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning is a single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole combat aircraft specifically intended to perform both air superiority and strike missions. It is also able to provide electronic warfare and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities.Tri-Cities was introduced to this mighty piece of American military hardware in September of last year and I remember the excitement of our area being treated to woman in the cockpit, rocking the F-35.
Get killer shoreline viewing on both sides of the river, beer gardens aplenty and the unforgettable fun that comes with the traditional last weekend in July.
