The Gallagher Great Race takes place on the Waikato River on Saturday September 10.
This year, the 5km race is between the Waikato University Senior Men's eight and a team from Washington University, United States.
It's a great family day out with live music, rowing races, street entertainment, food and drink, activities for kids, and a big screen so that you don't miss the action.
Entertainment starts at 10am, and entry is free. There's a stylish masquerade ball in the evening. Details are online.
