LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- If you're one of the many people who makes a point to go to the Madison Regatta every year, the event could look a little different next year thanks to a state grant.

Organizers of the annual southern Indiana hydroplane race are planning to use a $50,000 state grant to add musical acts that weekend.

Organizers say growing the music festival side of the event will hopefully boost attendance at the annual event in Jefferson County, Indiana.
