Below is an excerpt from the book, History of Chester 1759 - 1967.
"On Sept. 4th 1856, a grand regatta was held at Chester. I believe this became a yearly event for quite some time to come. This first regatta, as we are told in DesBrisay's History, was quite an event with more than 3000 persons present. There were seven different boat races conducted ranging from gigs of 4 oars, flats, punts, canoes and sail-boats. The winners all getting prizes of money. The regatta terminated with general illumination, fine torchlight procession and a beautiful display of fireworks."
