Biloxi Offshore Kickoff 2010

May 20-23, 2010- (Biloxi, Mississippi) Hubby and I went to Hardrock to enjoy the lunch buffet. We forgot about this big event happening on this date. It is the 6th Annual Smokin' the Sound, racing boats are here in town. I took these pictures at the Hardrock parking garage, a good location to see the spectacular boat race.

Those cars parked below owned by the spectators from different places. Most of them are tourist who come to Biloxi and enjoy the fun activities, eat good food and stay in the resorts in this area. This event is the first race of the year for the Offshore Super Series powerboat Racing Association. It was indeed spectacular! Colorful race boats with an airshow of helicopters that hover above the boats as they race for speed. It truly roars and the excitement is non-stop adrenalin rush!
The picture above shows the helicopter as it hovers the boats on the race. There were premium viewing areas provided by the sponsors such as Beau Rivage, Hard Rock, Small Craft Harbor, The Isle Casino, Pt. Cadet Marina, and The Dock Bar & Grill. Luckily for us, we are not in the premium area but, where we are is just an amazing place to watch it close.
A snap shot taken from where we are, Hard Rock Biloxi parking garage. Those who are not contented with this place, pay for a wristband to see it closer. Wristband prices were $ 10 to $25 and amazing location awaits you.

This is good for me and my hubby and it's FREE! Thanks Hard Rock! The roaring sound of the speed boats on the race is really LOUD! This location is perfect and the shade with the breeze from the Gulf is all we need to enjoy a world class spectacle such as this Smokin the Sound!
