Ya-Gotta Regatta? You may be asking yourself what is
it? Well it started as a hair brain idea for a fun community
event in the head of The Galleria publisher. He wanted to put on
a big event that would benefit the advertisers &
readers of The
Galleria, as well as the community as a whole. When he
decided to act and bring his idea to reality... He started with
a Google search and low & behold there was someone else out
their with hair brain ideas. So maybe he's not so crazy after
all... Our new friends in Australia have been doing this for
years! So in 2012 The Galleria brought it to America and
Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The first ever Beer Can Regatta in American
had some glitches, but it went off and everyone had the time of
there lives. We don't have video edited from last year. So our
friends have permitted us to provide a great video from their
regatta. Below is a awesome video production of the Darwin
Lions Beer Can Regatta.
As you can see from the video, it's a lot of fun...
what better way to enjoy some beers, music, & summer while raising a little
money for local service clubs and causes. Ya-Gotta Regatta is a lot more
than just a boat race... It has all the trimmings! Live music, a Classic Car Show and Cruise down main
street, and of course the Miss Regatta Swimsuit Pageant. The event has
something for just about everyone. We again are getting many local
businesses involved in sponsoring and building boats, or supporting the event
through other sponsorships as well. This year has all the makings for a great event in downtown Oshkosh, The Event City!
