- After a several decade long absence Hydroplane Races will return this year to Lake Coeur d' Alene. The event is called the Diamond Cup Regatta and it will feature a Grand Prix style Hydroplane race with what is called unlimited Hydroplane racing coming to next year's event. The event which does take place in and around Downtown Coeur d' Alene will happen on Labor Day Weekend and organizers are motivated and hope to make this one of the larger hydroplane races in the United States. It should also be noted the Diamond Cup Regatta has been held before but not with the actual races like 2012's event will feature.
These events plus all the new businesses opening really are a great sign for the economy of Coeur d' Alene.
