Buffalo Bayou Regatta
Here's another feather in Houston's cap: The Buffalo Bayou Regatta ranks among the top five such races in the country. Some 500 canoeists, kayakers and paddlers are expected for this year's race, which just happens to be the 41st annual regatta. Spectators are expected to line the banks of the race route, with everyone gathering at Sesquicentennial Park for awards (the Styrofoam Cup goes to the boat that collects the most trash along the way), music and food.
7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Finish line is at 400 Texas. For complete route information, call 713-752-0314 or visit www.buffalobayou.org. Free for spectators.
