Thunder On Cocoa Beach Welcomes Exciting Powerboat Racing To The Space Coast

The 15th Annual Thunder On Cocoa Beach, Presented By KelTec, takes place May 17-19 and promises exhilarating powerboat racing off the Atlantic Coast of Florida. Net proceeds raised from this year’s event benefit “I AM A FREEDOM FIGHTER” a non-profit that empowers organizations that prevent, identify, rehabilitate, and support survivors of human trafficking by raising money for them, and providing training for the community.

The weekend begins on Friday with a parade down A1A followed by a Downtown Block Party showcasing plenty of powerboats on display, food, drinks, and live music. Continuous world class powerboat racing will take place on Saturday and Sunday with over 60 race teams competing for the checkered flag reaching speeds of up to 160 mph. The best viewing area is between Shepard Park and Coconuts on The Beach. Throughout the weekend race teams from around the world will be on display in the Port Canaveral parking lot, which is open and free to the public.

New to the event this year is an elevated VIP Viewing experience on the beach at the Start/Finish Line at Lori Wilson Park and the Class 1 Experience. This year’s VIP viewing experience offers upgraded amenities for guests, a LIVE stream of all the racing action, expanded seating options, and enhanced dining and beverage selections with a cashless experience making purchases on the beach a breeze.
