St Clair will be the venue for the Blue Water Offshore Racing Associations 25th Annual Offshore Powerboat Races. Preparation is already underway including temporary no parking on either side of 9th Street and Francis Street. These streets are part of the route the boats use to get to the crane area. Also, be aware that M-29 will be closed from 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 24 through Noon Monday, July 29. Signs and detour routes will be clearly posted. Expect other temporary closures and changes within the next few days.
The Powerboats race in different classes as part of the Great Lakes Silver Cup Series and the Offshore Super Series. Past visitors can attest that the boats are a sight and sound to behold! There are hospitality tents, family-friendly activities, and more happening all weekend as part of the St. Clair Riverfest. Most of the setup is in the middle of N. Riverside Avenue (M-29), so keep an eye out for those posted detours.
