If you are looking for something unique to do this weekend you might think about the boat drag races in San Angelo.  I’ve never seen anything like it and I bet most of you and your kids haven’t either.  What could be more fun than lots of speed, boats and the lake?Here are the details about the showdown and also a video of last years event.  This is the 6th annual showdown.  You can even walk around see the boats up close, meet the drivers and get autographs. Boats race  side by side for a liquid quarter mile at about 250 mile per hour. In about 4 seconds!!!
