Three Rivers Folklife's Tumbleweed Music Festival, Howard Amon Park Richland, WashingtonThree Rivers Folklife Society has put on the Tumbleweed Music Festival every year and on August 30, 31, & September 1, 2019 the festival will be celebrating their 23rd annual festival. Bring the whole family out and enjoy some wonderful music, scrumptious food, and a walk through the park looking at what the different vendors have to display in Richland Washington's Howard Amon Park. If you are interested there will also be workshops to attend, here is a list of the workshops offered. Every year we love to take a stroll through the park listening to the various musical groups and letting the kids play. We can’t go to the festival without getting a few Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches from one of the food vendors for the family to share, they are delicious.

But the modern Unlimited Hydroplane has very little in common with those first boats that churned the waters of the Columbia River. The hydroplanes of today are almost more plane than hydro. They are thirty foot long; 7,000 pound wings that glide over the water with only the bare minimum of the boat making contact with the river. Powered by turbine engines capable of nearly 3,000 hp, the boats can reach straightaway speeds close to 200 miles per hour.
