Postponed earlier this month because of COVID-19, a boat show now aims to come to Sidney in late September.
The British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association has announced that the BC Boat Show will be in Sidney from Sept. 24 to 27.
Organizers had initially scheduled the show for April 30 to May 3, but the unfolding pandemic forced organizers to postpone it.
The show, marking its 30th anniversary this year, is a trade show for new and used boats, with 200 vessels of all sizes in the water at Port Sidney Marina. Businesses offering boat yard services, as well as marine-related hardware, equipment, navigation electronics, and clothing will also have exhibits.
The announced re-scheduling of the boat show suggests a certain confidence on behalf of organizers that life will have returned to something resembling pre-pandemic life.
