LakeFest 2015, August 7-9, marks the 24th year that the Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce transforms Lake Marble Falls into a liquid quarter-mile “racetrack” and the banks of the lake into a thrilling three-day boat race party.

BACK IN 2015 – Top Alcohol Hydro! Traveling at speeds of 200 plus MPH and impressive elapsed times of 4.322 in 1000 ft, the driver must be on his game each time. Top Alcohol Hydro may use alcohol (pure methanol), nitro-methane may be used with an unblown alcohol hydro. Blown or supercharged engines, as well as un-blown fuel engines may not exceed 565 cubic inches. These machines utilize both V-drives and w-drives and the out rigger style hull made its debut in 2011.

The highlight of the evening comes at dusk as top-fuelers “fire up”, shooting columns of flames from exhaust pipes and creating a chest-thumping roar. There will be musical entertainment after the Show n Shine. There is no admission fee for the concert or the Show & Shine.
