Bring lawn chairs or ground blankets to Birmingham Ferry and enjoy an exciting day of racing. Racing events are scheduled for July 6 - 7, and Aug. 3 - 4 from 10 .a.m to 5 p.m. The first races of the season were held June 1 - 2. Time trials will be held on Saturday and final races will take place on Sunday. There is a spectator fee of $5 per person; children under 12 are free.
The heart-pounding events feature blown-alcohol boats, hydros and jet-powered boats, and flat-bottom racers skimming the water at speeds exceeding 150 mph.
“The Kentucky Drag Boat Association summer races are a fun regional tradition,” said Gary Hawkins, Recreation Program Specialist at LBL. “It is a great event for spectators and adds an exciting, high speed element to all the other great outdoor recreation opportunities around the region.”
