Marble Falls LakeFest

The Marble Falls LakeFest drag boat races roar onto Lake Marble Falls for its 27th year Aug. 10-12, 2018. Qualifying is Friday and Saturday, Aug. 10-11, with eliminations Sunday, Aug. 12.

A free “Show N’ Shine” event is Friday night in Johnson Park, where spectators can meet the drivers and see the boats up-close. Some of the teams fire up their engines so you can feel the horsepower that propels some boats to speeds over 260 mph! View our Facebook photo album to relive the 2017 race weekend.

Something different this year will be the Show N’ Shine time and evening concert location. Johnson Park will open earlier for Show N’ Shine, 5:30-7 p.m., in order for people to attend the Red Carpet Chaos concert in Lakeside Park from 7-9 p.m. Another concert is scheduled in Lakeside Park for Saturday night, featuring Southern Underground from 6-9 p.m.
