Well, its finally Friday and mere hours from the opening of Race Village at Desmond Landing/Vantage Point. Many of the Powerboats have arrived and are showing off their colors in and around the parking lot here at the Great Lakes Maritime Center at Vantage Point. The work continues to get everything set up and ready. There will be food vendors, including Lily’s Woodfire Pizza we all know from the Farmer’s Market and elephant ears; street vendors selling their wares; and live music starting today at 7:00pm. Race Village opens today at 2:00, parking is $5 or you can utilize the ample free parking Port Huron offers every day. This looks like it will be a spectacular day, the sun is shinning, the breezes are blowing, and the water is a brilliant blue. Welcome racers and race fans to what will surely be an awesome weekend of fun, sun, and fast boats on the crystal clear waters of the Straights of St Clair, your beloved Blue Water Area.
