The event hosts hundreds of powerboats, sailboats, and all kinds of marine gear underneath a 40,000 square-foot tent. You can also catch up with boating experts and learn about the latest innovations in the marine industry.

Due to COVID-19, people who attend the event must have their temperatures taken before entering, and masks are mandatory.

The festivities will end Sunday, Jan. 17 at 5 p.m.
