Madison Indiana Photography

“Madison Regatta”


This is a huge weekend for Madison Indiana, the annual Madison Regatta is today thru Sunday. If you enjoy big crowds fast boats and a fun atmosphere this is the place to be.I would share some images with you if I had any but I am not much of sports photographer and I spend most of the time eating and indulging in adult beverages so I will just link you to the official site to get all the details.

If you are within a hour or two it is definitely worth the trip to be here, the hydroplanes can travel up to 200 mph and can put on quite a show, there will also be an fireworks display on Saturday night. There will also be plenty of live music for everyone and some great food as well, and it is always a great place to sit back and watch the diverse group of people that will walk the river this weekend.

Since I don’t have any shots of the boat race I will post one of the bridge they travel under, anyway have a great Fourth of July weekend and hopefully you can make it down to the race !!

  3. Very nice image, Bernie. But I hope they aren’t racing those hydroplanes at 200 mph into that fog! Hope you are having a great weekend. Enjoy the food and beverage. And the fireworks.

    • No Ed they don’t, but it would make for some exiting races though 😉

  5. Lots of mood in this photo. Bet it’s a totally different mood at the races after a few adult beverages!

  6. Lovely photos but I can imagine it was a lot less serene when the unlimited hydros were running around it. 🙂

    Syracuse hosted the unboard hydroplanes a couple of weeks ago which I blogged about. http://stphoto.wordpress.com/2009/06/24/syracuse-hydrofest/

    Hope you had better weather than I did!
