When and Where: Thursday was a beautiful day for a party along the Allegheny Steps Riverwalk at Point State Park. More than 100 Regatta fans gathered to mix and mingle before catching a performance by Steve Augeri, lead singer of Journey from 1998 to 2006.
You Gotta Regatta: "It's a matter of being passionate about the region. We all volunteer to work on this project. I like to think I get paid in smiles," said John Bonassi, chairman of the Three Rivers Regatta. Pittsburgh City Councilman Tom Baker, who attended the event with his wife, Erin, added, "We love how the Regatta brings the community together. It is a great tradition, and we are so happy to be a part of it."
#SEEN: Robert Petrilli, Jenn Beer and Ken McCrory stop to pose for pictures. Harry and Lynda Wargo came out to support not only the Regatta but also their son Harrison, who entertained the crowd on the piano. Kelly Markham, Allie Fetchko and Toni Maiorino chatted on the steps before the jet skiers took to the water. State Sen. Wayne Fontana and Natalie Cox talked favorite Regatta foods. (Her picks? "The hot sausage and lemon Italian ice," she said smiling.)
