The St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show will start on Thursday and continue through Sunday.

Entering its 36th year, the event is the largest in-water boat show on Florida's Gulf Coast and will take place at the Progress Energy Center for the Arts Mahaffey Theater Yacht Basin and Albert Whitted Park.

Organizers said this year's show is bigger, with expanded in-water displays featuring nearly 300 exhibitors and hundreds of boats displayed in the water and on land. There also will be an extensive schedule of marine seminars from Sail America, children’s fishing clinics presented by the non-profit Hook The Future, and refreshments and live musical entertainment along an expansive waterfront area.

The show is endorsed and sponsored by Sail America, presented by Lincoln and sponsored by Budweiser, Gosling's, Sail Magazine and Power & Motoryacht Magazine.

The deadline to pre-register for media credentials is today. Credentials for those who pre-register will be available for immediate pickup. Those who register after today may need to have their credentials processed when they arrive.
