Every city has their own traditions and events that are distinctly their own. Boston is lucky enough to have several of these traditions and one that I look forward to each year is the Head of the Charles Regatta. This autumn event occurs while foliage is at or near peak each year and makes for a beautiful backdrop for the 9,000+ athletes who come to compete.
First hosted in 1965, the event has grown into the world’s largest rowing competition and now spans two days, drawing 300,000+ spectators. Join in the fun and mark the event on your calendar. Plan to come down to the Charles River to watch and cheer on these athletes and take in all the fun.
