Jet ski racers compete in what has been called 'motocross on water'

The Sabine River in Orange has been a very busy body of water, from recent Bassmaster fishing tournaments to thundering tunnel boat racing. Now for the first time, the waterway will see a “Rumble on the River” as TxH20 Racing presents jet ski racing Saturday, July 14, and Sunday, July 15, at the Orange Boat Ramp (408 Pier Road).

“This is something new that everyone will enjoy,” said Brandy Judice, Orange CVB coordinator. “There will be no charge to attend this family-friendly event. Concessions and kids activities onsite will also be available.”

Bolivar Peninsula

The Bolivar Peninsula is a 27-mile stretch of beautiful coastal land with the Gulf of Mexico to the south and the Intracoastal Waterway extending the peninsula’s entire length to its north.

The peninsula, which is rich in history, is named after South American hero Simon Bolivar, who led South and Central Americans to fight for their freedom against Spanish rule. Natives once inhibited the area as Bolivar explored the land, as did Cabeza de Vaca and pirate Jean Lafitte.
