The Jacksonville In-Water Boat Show is coming to TIAA Bank Field and Metro Park Marina in April
The weekend show will be from Friday, April 3 to Sunday, April 5, 2020
Jacksonville, FL, Jan. 16, 2020 – For the third year, JBM & Associates is bringing the Jacksonville In-Water Boat Show to town. This year, the event will be a little bit different with boats and booths set up inside and outside TIAA Bank Field and the in-water portion at Metropolitan Park Marina. The producers have been working hard to line up boats of all sizes, marine products and services, plus activities for the whole family.
“We are still working on some final touches, but so far this show is on track to be our best show yet,” said Jacqui McGuinness, president of JBM & Associates. “Setting up boats on a football field is a first for us and for the Jaguars home field as well, and what we have planned is sure to please. Last year, we saw about 6,000 people come through the gates at Metro Park, we are expecting an even bigger number through the gates of TIAA Bank Field. We hope everyone will enjoy stepping on the field and onto some gorgeous boats.”
The Jacksonville In-Water Boat Show will feature hundreds of boats for sale including powerboats, jet boats, skiffs, cruisers, ski boats and yachts. There will also be more than 70 vendors with marine products, services and more. Top local fishing guides, including Captain Chris Rooney, will be leading adult fishing seminars and Captain Don Dingman from Hook the Future will be on hand to teach kids how to fish like grown-ups.
The Freedom Boat Club’s Freedom Boat Hut will be at the marina to provide free boat rides on the floating tiki bar. There will be boats of all kinds set up in the water and there will also be food trucks set up near the docks. The band, Acoustic Shade, will be performing live during the show. The producers have arranged a shuttle to bring visitors to and from the marina and TIAA Bank Field.
The City of Jacksonville is a sponsor of the event. Tickets can be purchased at jacksonvilleinwaterboatshow.com and range from $5 to $10. Entry to the in-water portion of the show is free. The Jacksonville In-Water Boat Show runs Friday, April 3 from noon until 6 p.m., Saturday, April 4 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, April 5 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
