Boats and business roar in Summers County over the weekend

HINTON (WVVA) -- The Travis Pond Memorial Regatta took over Bluestone Lake in Summers County this weekend.  Business was also roaring.

People came from all over the country to partake and watch these speed racers, which means people are paying to stay, eat, and shop.

Events like this typically are a help to the local economy.

The event takes place at Bluestone Lake each year, but the area is already looking forward to hosting the national competition in 2016.
