35th Annual Vintage Boat Show July 20, 2013
The Antique and Classic Boat Society, Inc., 1000 Islands Chapter, is celebrating its 35th anniversary with a vintage boat show in Alexandria Bay! Proceeds from the event will benefit local charities.
The event kickoff on Friday is a reception and cocktail party at the Boldt Yacht House. Amidst the setting of the architectural marvel and the collection of vintage boats, the guest will enjoy an abundance of delicious hors d’oeuvres.
The weekend event continues on Saturday with the Vintage Boat Show that draws annually 60-70 boats. The James Street Village Docks will showcase the boats, many that have toured the St. Lawrence for 25, 50 or even a few 75 years. The Boats will be on display for viewing from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM. The boats will be judged by a committee in over 25 categories including Type/Class awards; Builders Awards; and Special Awards. At 3:30pm, enjoy a parade of these Vintage Boats as they leave the docks, cruise towards The Edgewood Resort & Cherry Island, turn to pass Casino Island, The River Hospital, Capt. Thomson’s Resort, Bonnie Castle Resort, and the disperse.
On Sunday there will be a Dutch treat brunch and awards presentation at the Bonnie Castle Resort at 9;30 AM.
