For the third year in a row, people will be flocking to Demopolis, Ala., during the River City Rumble on July 16 and 17. The speedboat races have been a popular attraction.

"We're just real excited and we are looking forward to a great crowd," said Kelley Smith of the Demopolis Chamber of Commerce.

The boat race has gained a huge following. Over 100 different boat racers are entered.

"We have been told that the racers like this site and it is just a good area," Smith said.

The city expects 4,000 visitors to line the quarter mile stretch during the two day event.

The races will begin at 12 noon and end at 6:00 p.m. each day. Admission is $7.00 for adults and $6.00 for children under 12.
