High Speed Thrills At BayFair on Mission Bay This Weekend!
This weekend is the Bayfair Festival Powerboat Races and those around Mission Bay are in for a real treat. The Bayfair is a part of the Fleet Week 16 day celebration honoring our military. Normally I would have photos here when I post local events but my iMac is in the Apple Hospital getting a new heart (hard drive.) and a complete diagnostic check up of the logic board and I am composing this post on my iPad using html. I tell everyone about the great service at Apple but that is a post for another day.
These turbine powered boats reach speeds of up to 200 miles an hour and will do that on the two and half mile long straights of Mission Bay. And it was announced that the Unlimited Hydroplanes are back this year after they disappeared two years ago. They will be racing Saturday with the championship determined in a race on Sunday afternoon. There will be a dozen races happening continuously over the weekend. Ever hear of drag boat racing? Well it is a sight to see and also on the schedule will be the Grand Prix West. The best locations to take in the action would be Fiesta Island, Crown Point and Ski Beach. But come early, the best spots will be taken by the start time of 7:00AM. If I were picking the best spot it would be a ski beach because there will be other entertainment set up ther along food vendors.
Date:Saturday Sept 17th and Sunday Sept 18th
Time: 7:00AM to 6:00PM
Where: Mission Bay Admission Ranges from $20 to $45 ( Admission is Free for All Active Military and Children under 12 ) If you would like more information go to sandiegobayfair.org.
