Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals - May 6-8

The 28th Annual Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals is a unique show for all makes, models, and years of show vehicles, trucks and motorcycles. We bring over 28 years of show experience to the historic Bagnell Dam Strip at the Lake of the Ozarks. The strip is closed to normal traffic during show hours, so only show vehicles are within the boundaries. This creates and absolutely electric atmosphere! Some say it's like being on the set of "American Graffiti".

19th Annual Spring Harbor Hop - May 7

Kick off the boating season by participating in the 19th Annual Spring Harbor Hop on May 7th. Dozens of the Lake's best restaurants and marinas will be set up as checkpoints for participants to draw a card and try to make the best or worst poker hands.
