Tough call, but the boat races combined with the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show is a FUN time! Fantasy Fest is on my list as well, and I've yet to hear a bad experience come out of there yet!

I'd have to choose Fantasy Fest, cause I've never done it before. Something Totally different.

I'm sure Bobcat will share a bed for FantasyFest.

But the Laud Show and the PR and Races are the bomb.

Never been to Fantasy Fest, but talked to several that were staying for the races. I still think that I would take the races, just love the atmosphere.

I was talking to a bar tender last year at the races and he said the busiest times of the yr for him are, 1) New Years Eve 2) Race Wknd 3) Fantasy Fest.

He said at fantasy fest most people hang out on the streets, look at everything that goes on, you get a lot of people watchers, that sort of thing. But when the races come to town people are looking to party and the bars fill up and shots start flowing.

Plus, lets be honest, there is nothing like the roar of those engines!!!
