Sunnyland Antique Boat Festival

Antique Boat Festival


Bright and early Saturday morning, our Sun 'n Fun Vettes group met in the Publix grocery store parking lot at Hwy 54 and Bruce B. Downs Blvd. in Wesley Chapel and headed out for Tavares, FL and the annual antique boat festival.  We had a good cruise to Tavares, parked in the parking garage near the boat show location and spent the day looking at some of the most beautiful boats you'll see anywhere.  There were also some old woodie wagons and the Amphicar club was there with their car-boats.  Seaplane and helicopter rides were available for a price.  We had a gorgious Florida day for this outing. 


A few pictures of the boat show are shown on this page, but you can click the link above and see a slideshow of many more pictures of the boats, cars and planes.
