The Three Rivers Regatta is on Saturday and there is an all day range of events and performances, including dancers and drummers at 1:00 on the Main Stage at Point Park; One Up Skateboard Team at 3:30, 5:00 and 7:00 pm, and Circus Orange at 8:45 pm. On Sunday, it’s another full schedule of things, and at 2 p.m., the “Salute to Speed” F-3 Powerboat Superleague North American Championships: Time Trials (2 p.m.), Qualifiers (4 p.m.), and Finals (7 p.m.).
Monday brings another day of activities and performance, and of course the fireworks, which start at 9:35 pm. The fireworks are done by Pyrotechnico, from New Castle, and it’s going to be a multi-site show, as in the last couple of years.
