It will all start with a free kickoff party in the beer garden, Friday, June 11, with Hydro Happy Hour, from 4 to 8 p.m.

There will be free parking all weekend.

The popular personal watercraft racing starts at 3 p.m. Friday, and 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.

In the main event, there will be 64 hydroplanes competing for the KZOK Cup.
