Power Boat Weekend
June 17 - June 19
June 15 – 17, join Lake Effect Boating for their annual “Power Boat Weekend!” This is a spectator event featuring about 80 boats which hopes to raise over $6,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The fun starts Friday night with the Powerboat Street Party! 15 of the biggest and baddest boats will surround Hackley Park. See boats with incredible paint designs and engine horsepower up to 2700, while tasting some of Muskegon’s best food and beverage at the Taste of Muskegon.
The fun continues on Saturday as the boats gather outside of the Shoreline Inn on Muskegon Lake at 12:00pm. At 12:10pm, the boats will travel west on Muskegon Lake for the event favorite, the Parade of Power. Spectators can watch the boats head to Lake Michigan for the Poker Run anywhere along the channel. Once out the Muskegon Channel, boats will take off towards White Lake at 12:30pm for the 1st poker stop turning around and heading to Grand Haven for the 2nd. Boats will return to Muskegon between 2:00 – 4:00pm for poker run stops at the USS Silversides Submarine, USS LST 393 Landing Ship, Hartshorn Marina and Great Lakes Marina.
Sunday, June 17 has no formal events, but ‘Sunday Funday’ will include boats rafting-off along the Muskegon State Park Dune Area and in the Breakwater Arms, along with enjoying some of the great Muskegon Lake hang outs like Dockers, Lake House Grille and Bear Lake Tavern.
