Let’s start with the basics, Regatta is an annual canoe race that takes place this Saturday September 24, 2016 in the downtown Indianapolis Canal off 11th street. The canal is easily accessible with gorgeous city views and ample grassy space for spectators-might I suggest a picnic basket?! Thousands of IUPUI students, staff, faculty and alumni turn out to come together for this exhilarating event, don’t miss the chance to cheer on your department, make new friends and even walk away with some swag!
