The 54th Tri-Cities Water Follies wrapped up another outstanding weekend of high-speed unlimited hydroplane racing and aerial acrobatics yesterday with the Columbia Cup Final Heat.

J. Michael Kelly, driver of the Graham Trucking unlimited hydro, was the eventual winner, topping a field of seven boats with an average speed of 149.5 MPH.

Here are some of the sights and sounds from the Pasco side taken from in the water just off the river bank at the appropriately named Wade Park. One of the advantages for spectators watching from the other side of the river is that patron are allowed to stay in the water while the heats are going on.
