The Head of the Colorado (PumpkinHead Regatta) is held annually on the last Saturday of October. ARC has been hosting this regatta since the mid-1980's. 2018 marks the 34th Annual PumpkinHead Regatta.

This 5,000 meter head race on Lady Bird Lake in Austin, Texas offers events for the following: junior, collegiate, open, adaptive and masters rowers.

The 2018 Course will row through six of the seven bridges on Lady Bird Lake. It starts at Barton Creek and travels through the bridges eastward. The turns are all gradual and there are lots of great spectator locations on the bridges, near the start, at Festival Beach Park, and on the boardwalk.
