DETROIT -- This year's entertainment and family attractions are as exciting as the competition on the river. The heat is on in July with the 2008 Chrysler Jeep Superstores Detroit APBA Gold Cup Race.

New attractions and longer hours of operation increase the summertime fun. Friday, July 11, is "free Friday," with the racecourse open until 6:30 p.m. for racing fans. The races take place on the Detroit River racecourse near Belle Isle, recognized worldwide as the premier site for hydroplane boat racing.

The Navy's West Coast Super Hornet Demo Team will bring the thunder over the Detroit River by demonstrating maneuvers of one of the U.S. Armed Forces' most impressive aircraft, the FA-18.

The Navy also will present its high-tech "Accelerate Your Life Experience," a firsthand view of Navy life complete with interactive video games and the 180-degree "Immersa-Domes." The domes plunge participants into the real-world sights, sounds and smells of a Navy seaman through a thrilling virtual reality experience.

For sports fans of all ages, the Michigan Hall of Fame will present a wide array of sports challenges and inflatables, including a football obstacle course, a full-action video golf simulator, a pro-style Wiffle ball batting cage and hockey and lacrosse skill zones in the Family Fun Zone located in the Hydromart. A traveling museum commemorating Michigan's sports heroes will also be on site.

The Salvation Army Outdoors will also host an Outdoor Family Fun Zone on the riverfront in Henderson Park. Family friendly activities including "virtual" fishing, casting lessons, archery, relay races, face painting and more will all be part of the fun. The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit has been named the official charity of the 2008 APBA Gold Cup race. A percentage of all proceeds from the general admittance tickets will go to support the Salvation Army Outdoors, an initiative designed to provide youth and families with fun and educational outdoor experiences such as fishing, boating, hiking and camping.

A large picnic area, games, arts and crafts, balloon artists and wandering stilt walkers are additional family attractions.

The 2008 Chrysler Jeep Superstores APBA Gold Cup weekend is the premier family water-racing event.

The title sponsor is the Chrysler Jeep Superstores Advertising Association.
