Bright House Clearwater Super Boats National Championship & Seafood Festival
The ‘fastest show on water’ will once again be returning to Clearwater’s sugar white sand coast with the Bright House Clearwater Super Boats National Championship & Seafood Festival on Sept. 27-29, 2013. The three-day event is full of family-friendly activities, VIP events, a delicious seafood festival, exciting fireworks display and some of the world’s fastest and largest powerboats.
Traveling at speeds approaching 180 miles per hour, the super boats, most equipped with F-16 canopies, will compete for the title of national champion in ten classes. The 2.5-mile race course is located just off-shore from Clearwater’s award-winning beaches and spectators can view the exciting action from the beach, Pier 60, various VIP viewing parties or from a boat viewing area in the middle of the track. Further details and ticketing information for the Pier 60 viewing area and the VIP parties at the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach and the Hilton Clearwater Beach can be found at www.clearwatersuperboat.com.
The exciting weekend kicks off Friday, Sept. 27 at the Baystar Race Village in downtown Clearwater, where spectators will see the boats on display, meet the drivers and participate in a variety of activities, followed by a special Blast Friday and boat parade. The Seafood Festival will take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. in downtown Clearwater’s Coachman Park, with specialties from local restaurants available for purchase.
