SAN DIEGO BAYFAIR: San Diegans know when the powerboats are in town. The sound of roaring engines can be heard miles away from Mission Bay. The boats, some racing at speeds over 225 miles per hour, come every year to San Diego because of the outstanding race course conditions and (of course) the weather.
SPEED & THRILLS: Race fans from all over the world, over 150,000 spectators in 3 days, will migrate to Fiesta Island Sept. 17-19. A 3-day super pass includes a pitpass for $45. Kids 6 and under are free.
FAMILY FUN: Besides racing, expect some entertainment, a kids' zone, food booths and beer gardens for those 21 and over set up on Vacation Isle and Crown Point.
MILITARY FREEBIE: Active military personnel and reservists with valid ID will be admitted free. To purchase advance tickets or for more information, call 619-434-8260.
WEEKEND STAY: Make it a true getaway with a room at the Catamaran Resort on Mission Boulevard. Race fans can book rooms for a special rate of $209 a night.
