SARASOTA -- Can you feel it in the air? It is almost time to take to the beach and fire up the 35th Annual Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix.

Friday night it was time to party on Main Street. The Powerboat block party got going at 6pm. We are talking live music, food, drinks and a chance to get up close and personal with some high octane race boats. The team, "On Edge Racing," is as local as it comes. Captain Bill Quinn was soaking in the buzz down on Main Street.


"It is amazing. This is my first time on the block party, and this turnout is tremendous. We did the autograph sessions with all the little kids. Really is a lot of fun," Quinn said.
