The Offshore Powerboat Association's Point Pleasant Beach Grand Prix happens this weekend!

You'll be able to see the race from anywhere on the Point Pleasant boardwalk and beach, even as far south as Avon. The premier location, though, will be around Martell's Tiki Bar and Jenks Pavilion, where the boats will make their turns.
