SPARKS Hydrofest 2012 - Boat racing is coming back to the City of Sparks, Saturday and Sunday, August 18 and 19th after a 20+ year hiatus. Originally racing at the Teglia Ponds (later re-named Paradise Ponds) the outboard hydroplanes and flat-bottomed runabouts will be churning it up at the newer and highly improved Sparks Marina. You will see drivers from 9 years old running stock hydroplanes at 40mph to adults skimming the water at speeds close to 100mph. Come and gather around the lake to see 2 days of thrills, speed, and roostertails. This is a FREE spectator event and will be sanctioned by the American Power Boat Association. Get there early for best parking and viewing. Details: www.apba-racing.com or www.boatracingr11.com. .
