Portion of Kelly Drive closed due to Dad Vail Regatta in Philadelphia

The largest collegiate regatta in North America returns to Philly.
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Part of Kelly Drive is closed until Saturday evening due to the 83rd Dad Vail Regatta in Philadelphia.

The largest collegiate regatta in North America returned Friday.

Hundreds of athletes will compete on the Schuylkill River over two days.

Fans are back this year after not being permitted last year. The entire event was canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions.

All of this means drivers need to be aware of the closure on Kelly Drive.

Kelly Drive will be closed between Brewery Hill Drive and Strawberry Mansion Drive until Saturday at 6:30 p.m.

The Dad Vail Regatta App is also back to keep track of each day's schedule and results.
