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.

50th Annual Columbia Cup Hydroplane Races On The Columbia River 2015The 2019 HAPO Columbia Cup will mark the 54th time Unlimited Hydroplanes have raced on the Columbia River.
