Jacksonville In-Water Boat Show will return to Metropolitan Park and Marina

JBM & Associates is once again bringing the Jacksonville In-Water Boat Show to Metropolitan Park and Marina.

The dates have been set for April 5-7, and Yamaha is the event’s main sponsor.

“We are currently working to put the final touches on the event, which is sure to be another great crowd pleaser,” said Jacqui Bomar, president of JBM & Associates, in a statement.

“Last year, we had about 5,500 come through the gates and unfortunately we had to shut down early on Sunday due to heavy rains,” said Bomar. “This year we are hoping for great weather and an even bigger turnout. We have lots of great activities planned that everyone will enjoy and we have some great prize giveaways. Our presenting sponsor will also be giving away Yamaha hats each day to the first 100 people through the gates.”

The Jacksonville In-Water Boat Show will feature more than 75 different boat brands on site; local fishing guides will lead adult fishing seminars and Captain Don Digman from Hook the Future will be there to teach kids how to fish like grown-ups.

The Freedom Boat Club’s Freedom Boat Hut will be there to provide free boat rides on the floating tiki bar and Captain Jack Sparrow and his band of pirates will also return.
