The History of the LakeFest Regatta

Dozens of boats will take to the water for one race today and two tomorrow, and while it will be fun, they are doing it for a cause.

In its 20th year, the regatta has raised over a million dollars for children’s charities. And while these boats race for a cause, there will still be some competition.

This year’s proceeds will benefit the special needs children of Grayson County.

The first race will begin today at noon and then tomorrow at noon as well. The starting point is at Grandpappy Point in Denison.

The Texoma Sailing Club and Denison Chamber Of Commerce are hosting the event. They invite you to a gala tomorrow night at 6:30. Tickets are $35 at the door.
