LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The weather was cloudy...then it was sunny...then it was cloudy again...then it was sunny...for the 2016 Great Steamboat Race!

In the end, crowds aboard the Belle of Cincinnati cheered as both it and the Belle of Louisville pulled into dock -- the Kentucky Wildcat mascot aboard the Belle of Cincinnati, and the Louisville Cardinal aboard the Belle of Louisville. 

"Congrats to the Belle of Cincinnati!" the Kentucky Derby Festival tweeted at the end of the evening. "They take home silver antlers as the winners of the 2016 Great Steamboat Race!"
