The Belle of Cincinnati's stacks were lowered while traveling under the Madison-Milton Bridge on Monday. The boat was headed to Louisville to compete against the Belle of Louisville in the Kentucky Derby Festival's annual Great Steamboat Race, which begins at 6 p.m. Wednesday. The race is actually a series of tasks that each Belle completes. Scores for each event are tallied, and the steamboat with the most points wins. The Great Steamboat race is one of many events leading up to the 2014 Kentucky Derby on Saturday. (Staff photo by Ken Ritchie/
