U.S. Powerboat Show - Chelsea Hanson

The United States Powerboat Show held it's 44th show over the weekend in Annapolis, Maryland.

The show, which is the world's oldest in-water powerboat show, lasted four days and hosted over 300 exhibitors at the historic City Dock. 

The local Water Taxi provided shuttle transportation from the main exhibition to Brokerage Cove.

On the other side of the Eastport Bridge, Brokerage Cove was situated behind St. Mary's Church.

Annapolis Elementary School offered parking to raise money for the school. Emily (left) and Molly, both Annapolis residents and employees at the school, volunteered to help Friday afternoon. Parking was also available at the Navy Marine Corps. Memorial Stadium, where visitors would then take a bus shuttle to the event.

Others also took advantage of the influx of visitors by posting flyers advertising their powerboats or property for sale.

Despite City Dock being almost entirely gated off for Powerboat Show guests only, businesses still made an effort to draw customers.
