In the 1880s, Greenville held lavish festivities to celebrate the Fourth of July and by 1889, this included boat races. Four local crews joined in the First Annual regatta, and spectators gathered along the river to see the Dixie win her first cup. In 1890, the regatta continued with locals providing prizes to the participants, and the Dixie again won the Championship Cup of the Tar River Boat Club. In 1891, a flood cancelled the annual boat race.
