Annapolis Boat Show Set Up

The 45th United States Sailboat Show began October 9, 2014 at Annapolis city dock. The event saw 130,000 attendants over a four-day period.
Local marinas were packed with out-of-town sailors who took their boats to the weekend-long sailboat show.

Vendors and event staff have just three days to turn the sailboat show into the powerboat show that starts on October 16, 2014 at 10 a.m.
Event staff rushes to prepare new vendor booths to accommodate for the power boat show that begins on Thursday, October 16. 
Sea Ray crew members install their floating dock that will allow attendants to walk directly onto the many boat models at the show.
Power boats are lined up along Annapolis' city dock for potential buyers to view.

Local businesses welcome boat show attendants. Many are providing specials to entice diners to enter their restaurants or stores.

Wags, a local bartender at McGarvey's Saloon and Oyster Bar, says the boat show's presence has increased traffic into the restaurant over the last week.
