Owensboro Hydrofair expected to boost tourism, economy

Owensboroans have always loved the high-speed, fast-paced, roaring engines of the Owensboro Air Show. Now, we’re bringing more of that excitement to the water at the Owensboro Hydrofair!  50 teams will travel from across the country to compete in “nonstop racing action” on the Ohio River on August 14-16.  Die-hard fans from as far as Texas, New York, and Washington are already booking their hotel rooms, and tens of thousands of viewers are expected.  These boats are fast, powerful, and loud, reaching up to 160 MPH and spraying water high into the air as they rip through the river.  The engine’s thunderous noise is many hydroplane racing fans favorite component!
