Tastin' n Racin' kicks-off summer with a roar

While we may need a poncho or umbrella to enjoy it, Tastin' n Racin' welcomes Eastsiders from around the lake to indulge in an iconic Northwest passion – hydroplanes – at Lake Sammamish State Park on Saturday and Sunday, June 9-10. During the 16th annual event, attendees can immerse themselves in the noise and hullabaloo of Grand Prix Hydro's, unlimited vintage hydros, limited hydros and restored vintage hydros.

If that isn't enough hydro action, they can checkout the Unlimiteds on exhibit from the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum. Visitors can also see the Hot Boat Show on Saturday and the Classic Car Show on Sunday. There will be bands on the Main Stage, with a headlining band Saturday and Sunday at 3pm. And, of course, there will be beer gardens and food vendors galore.

Admission is free to the MGD Hydro Happy Hour on Friday, June 8 from 4 – 8 p.m. Otherwise, Saturday (9 a.m.-7 p.m.) and Sunday (9 a.m.-6 p.m.) the cost for general admission is $10.00, Juniors (6yrs – 16 yrs) and Seniors (65yrs+) $5.00 and children 5 years and under are free.
