TAYLOR, B.C. – The Peace Country River Rats will be bringing jet boat racing back to the Peace Region this coming Labour Day weekend.

The 4th Annual Taylor Flats 200 will be taking place on September 3rd and 4th starting at 9:00 a.m. on both days. Trapper Wolsey with the River Rats says that the race will see between 20 and 25 boats zooming along the Pine River from Peace Island Park to Happy Hour Corner all morning, before racing along the group’s 5.5 mile circuit on the Peace River.

There will be five classes of boats entered into the race, with the Top 3 drivers eligible for trophies and a cash prize. Wolsey says that anyone with a boat can catch the races along the banks of both the Peace and Pine Rivers. Those without a boat can watch from the bleachers at Peace Island Park. The group will also be hosting a show’n’shine on Friday, August 2nd at the North Peace Leisure Pool parking lot from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.
