Event: -
Sydney Trailer Boat Show set to be fun for all the family.

I love anything to do with the water. Whether it's salt or fresh, it doesn't matter.

On Saturday the 7th and Sunday the 8th of March, the Sydney Trailer Boat Show will be on again and guess what? It's FREE ADMISSION.

The Sydney Trailer Boat Show has origins dating back to the early 1960s at Silverwater Park and the show has evolved to bring visitors a greater lineup of trailer boating, a segment that remains the leading and most popular boating type for Australians.

Visitors to the show will be able to see a great array of new trailer boats for most boating tastes with lots of gear for boating, as well as some fishing tackle. With more than 90% of all registered boats being less than 8 metres long, this show certainly covers the popular boating segments.

To keep the visitors entertained and informed, the Nautilus Marine Entertainment Stage will feature some great speakers. One not to be missed event will be "Classic Catches with Slippery Len Pascoe". The cricketing legend will tell you his fishing stories from the field.

And if you want to bring the kids along, you won't have to worry about keeping the kids entertained. There will be a Bikini Bottom Beach Party. They could join Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star in the "Bikini Bottom Dance"; wiggle it out with the "Jelly Fish Jam"; take part up on stage in a game of "Seaweed War"; put their hula hip moves to some hula hip music; and jump on your surf boards and show us their wiping out skills in "Surf's up".

The shows start at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. There will also be face painting and drawing fun at the Kids Zone. New to the show will be the Used Boat Market Place. Those not in the market for something new can have a look at excess summer stock the Sydney Boating Dealers have on offer.
