The U.S. Senate approved a resolution designating Aug. 8 as National Marina Day.

This resolution supports the goals of National Marina Day and urges America's marinas to continue to serve as environmentally friendly gateways to boating.

The resolution was sponsored by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., and co-sponsored by Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss.; Sen. Russell Feingold, D-Wis.; Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.; Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis.; Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.; Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.; Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich.; Sen. David Vitter, R-La.; and Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I.

National Marina Day is celebrating its eighth year, and marinas around the country are recognizing the day at their facilities by inviting their communities to visit and learn about the industry and the link marinas provide to our waterways.

Planned celebrations are as small as providing handouts on clean water to customers and guests, and as large as all-day festivals with banquets and fireworks. Click here for a list of events.

National Marina Day is produced by the Association of Marina Industries.
