The Morgan City Volunteer Fire Department presents 2013 Championship Boat Races Deep by South Racing Association Saturday, August 24, and Sunday, August 25, 2013 at the Russo Boat Landing on LA 70 in Morgan City. This event just seems to keep getting bigger and better each year. With the help from the Parish Council much work has been done at the boat ramp where almost everyone attending will have front row seats.
Food Booths will be selling various food and non alcoholic beverages. This is truly a family oriented event. The cost of admittance will be $ 10.00, per adult, $ 5.00 per child, and $ 10.00 for each ice chest per day. The MCVFD provides an Extrication Team for the area of Calumet Bridge to Patterson and Berwick to the Amelia Bridge. Also we provide medical assistance for the same area and provide additional Firefighter and support personnel to the Morgan City Fire Dept. With the support of this event we can improve, buy more, and maintain our equipment to better serve our community. It's a great family friendly outing. These boats fly down the river barely touching the water at all. You can't go wrong with one of these events.
