More than 7,000 people recently attended the 42nd annual Naples Boat Show, and its first accompanying Seafood Festival. The event was sponsored by the Marine Industries Association of Collier County.

More than 100 vendors, including more than 20 area boat dealers and in excess of 80 related businesses were on hand for the show.

“We were thrilled with the turnout this year and look forward to continuing the tradition in an even bigger way next year,” said Summer Hoglund, director of MIACC, in a statement. “Our guests and vendors enjoyed themselves and the weather couldn’t have been better. Just another day in boater’s paradise.”
