LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky Derby Festival is going full steam ahead on the Great Steamboat Race, announcing plans for the event Wednesday morning.
The Belle of Louisville and the Belle of Cincinnati will be the only two boats competing for the gilded antlers this year. They'll be scored on ten tasks, like navigating inflatable obstacle courses and retrieving flags.
There will also be a new task that will involve paddlewheel assembly for the steamboats to compete against each other in.
