More than 100 wooden classics and vintage boats will be on land and in the water for this family-friendly event on the banks of the Miles River. Scenic boat rides on the 1920s oyster boat Winnie Estelle will be offered throughout the festival.

Classic yachts, race boats, work boats, and hydroplanes are among the types of boats competing in a boat show that culminates Sunday, June 21. Some boats will pair with classic cars of the same period, making great photo opportunities for families.
