The Derby Festival Great Steamboat Race is being postponed because of conditions on the Ohio River.

Officials say the Belle of Cincinnati won’t able to make the trip downriver to face the Belle of Louisville in the May 4 race, due to debris and fast river currents.

The race will be held June 29; people who have tickets for the May 4 race should hold onto them for the new date.
