Marble Falls, TX.,(Aug. 8th, 2014) For the Twenty-third year the Marble Falls Chamber of Commerce plays host to Lakefest at Lake Marble Falls on the Colorado River. Lakeside Park is transformed into a spectator area for the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Series, with food, beverage and other vendors on hand. The Johnson Park/Backbone Creek area becomes filled with numerous classes of drag boats ranging from the high-horsepower, crowd pleasing, Top Fuel Hydros to beginner classes of personal water craft.

With a dozen classes appearing there is always something for everyone. The bad boys of the group, Top Fuel Hydros have been led at this event by Daryl Ehrlich(Round Rock) in his boat, Problem Child, that currently holds both ends of the national record with a pass of 3.396 @ 258.26mph on the 1000' course set at Lakefest 2011.

Also in the pro class of boats are the Top Alcohol Hydros, Top Alcohol Flat Bottoms and Pro Mods. The Sportsman contingency includes Pro Competition Eliminator, Pro Eliminator, Top Eliminator, Modified Eliminator, Stock Eliminator, River Racer and two personal watercraft classes.

Fridays activities begin with the gates opening at 7:00am for registration and an open test-n-tune session starting at 8:00am. In the evening following the test session a show and shine contest will have boats displayed in the pit area and a concert by the Luke Williams Band. Tickets for Friday's practice will be $10.00.

The gates will again open at 7:00am on Saturday with qualifying in all the classes starting at 8:00am. Saturday tickets will be $25.00 for adults, and $10.00 for children ages 6-12. Deacon Willie is slated to play in Johnson Park that night at 8:00pm.
