Party in the Pits at Fountain

The rumble of the engines will have to wait until after the sound of music Saturday night at the "Party in the Pits" at Fountain Powerboats.

Music kicked up at 7:30 at the Fountain Powerboat Factory with sounds from our own region, beach music. The Catalina's got things started, and got bodies dancing the shag. Up next was Confederate Railroad, a group with a little country but a lot of rock and roll. The race boats surrounded the activities giving visitors the chance to see the speed machines up close.

And those very boats will be tested Sunday, when the Super Boat International Grand Prix starts up at 1 p.m.
