Festival – Wooden Boat Show – October 20th
It’s the 23rd Annual Georgetown Wooden Boat Show!
Saturday, October 20, 2012 from 11 AM – 6 PM / Free Admission
The Georgetown Wooden Boat Show offers fun for the whole family. This year’s show will feature one of the nation’s best wooden boat exhibits with more than 100 classic wooden boats displayed on land and water, a wooden boatbuilding competition, children’s model boatbuilding, knot tying, maritime art and crafts, food, and music.
A special attraction will be the Wooden Boat Challenge when teams of two race to build a rowing skiff within a 4 hour time limit and then test their boats for seaworthiness in a rowing relay on the Sampit River.
Wooden Boat Show events will take place on the waterfront and along Front Street in Historic Downtown Georgetown. The Show is produced by the Harbor Historical Association, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, and is a major fundraiser for the South Carolina Maritime Museum
