Each Thursday we list all the boat shows, nautical festivals, and the like, that are happening that weekend so that you can have a chance to go to one if it's near you. And if you can't get out on the water this weekend, it will not be a total loss - there are several boat shows and festivals as National Fishing and Boating Week continues and we celebrate National Marina Day on Saturday...

National Fishing and Boating Week, Marina Day

National Fishing and Boating Week, a national celebration of fun on the water continues through this Sunday, June 12th. Combine that with this Saturday being National Marina Day, and there is a pretty good chance a marina near you is at least having a BBQ or open house. Check the National Marina Day website to see if YOUR marina is doing anything special to celebrate.
