The Great Handcar Regatta or “Things I’m Excited about this Week”

Handcar Regatta - Santa Rosa Rail Road Square

HandCar Regatta - Santa Rosa Rail Road Square

Last year Scout and I at a fantastic time at the first modern Handcar Regatta in Santa Rosa. It was a trill to see the train tracks used and to see so many people out supporting art and mechanics, some of our favorite topics. This year with the SMART Train becoming a reality and having watched crews systematically replacing old rail road ties, I’m excited to see the tracks come to life, as if a glimpse of what it will look like in a few years.

Come out, have fun, get all steampunkie for a day. September 27th from 11am – 6pm at Rail Road Square in Santa Rosa. Not just races but vendors, bands and best of all a side show.
