The National Marine Manufacturers Association announced in a statement that its Norwalk Boat Show opened yesterday at Norwalk Cove Marina in Norwalk Conn.

Show hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Adult tickets are $15, and children under 12 are free.

NMMA said that with this year’s show it intends to engage the new boaters who entered the market during the pandemic. Highlights include the Goose Hummock saltwater fishing series, on-water training by the Annapolis School of Seamanship, boat rides, a conservation village and daily seminars.

New this year is “Norwalk Says No to Plastic,” a clean-water campaign in which Norwalk elementary- and middle-school students will compete to create a project that demonstrates how reducing the use of plastic is good for the environment. The winning team will receive a $500 grant for environmental efforts.

On Sept. 19, show producers partnered with the Clean Earth Project for a preshow beach cleanup at nearby Veteran’s Memorial Park, which resulted in the collection of more than 120 pounds of trash.
