When: Aug. 14-16, 10 a.m. 2009
The three-day event runs Aug. 14-16 and features art and gifts to purchase to commemorate the event. But the real stars of the show are the wooden boats at the dock on the Shore Lodge. Skippers show off their "precious relics" and participate in a weekend of boat launches, classic boat parades and an awards dinner and auction. The afternoon of Saturday, Aug. 15, participants can enjoy a no-host barbecue, and early Sunday they can watch the not-so-slow cruise of the fleet to North Beach. The event is hosted by the Payette Lakes Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society.
