Hydroplanes arrive in the Tri-Cities

We're just two days away from the start of the boat race weekend, and the hydroplanes are starting to arrive in the Tri-Cities.

Seven hydroplanes were on display this evening at the Columbia Center Mall in Kennewick.

There were unlimited hydros, grand prix hydros, even some vintage hydros.

Dozens of families from across the region came to the mall to check out the fast boats up close.

Drivers will start testing the hydros on the water this Friday for the 48th annual Columbia Cup.

The races begin on Saturday.
