There's lots to do in Mason county this weekend as the annual Regatta comes to town.

Music and entertainment fill the air at the amphitheater stage on the riverfront where people can kick back and listen to some great bands.

There's also lots of special food and drink stands lining the streets where you can get anything from an old-fashioned soda to funnel cakes..

The event also has plenty of games and contests for children in the area.

Some folks say it's a great way for people to get together.

"We've seen friends we probably haven't seen since last year at this time a lot of people come in to Point pleasant for this event," Lil and Dan Rogers of Point Pleasant said.

Friday night proud family members got to cheer on their favorite tot at the Prettiest Baby contest.

The regatta continues this weekend.
