HydroFest is taking place on the Evansville Riverfront this Labor Day weekend. It's the first time Hydro plane racing will be taking place in the area for quite some time. This morning, their was a press conference for the upcoming event where we learned a lot of details.

One of the details we learned were a number of fantastic non-profits are involved and are selling the wristbands. Schnucks stores will also be selling the wristbands for $10.
