#TOBoatShow 2018 starts this weekend

There are some boats still in the harbour but ice has them locked in place, going nowhere, so now you have time to visit the fleet that is in the Enercare Centre from January 12 to 21. North America's largest indoor boat show comes back for its 60th anniversary with 1,200 boats, over 500 exhibitors and the world's largest indoor lake! You can see the lake full of one million gallons of Lake Ontario water on the live webcam. If you are in the market for a boat, or just like to dream, this is the show for you.

"There’s something for everyone from wakeboarding lessons, canoe and kayaking boat rides to fishing demos, seminars and even a live trout pond for kids to get hooked on fishing. New this year, visitors can watch the fun and competitive sport of stand up paddleboard polo, or cheer on the World Championship Indoor Sea Flea Races (single-person DIY hydroplane boats) as they zip across the Lake."

My top ten list of things I want to see at the Toronto International Boat Show.

1. Twiggy the waterskiing squirrel.
2. The transparent kayak and Stand Up Paddle Boarding with Baywatch actress Brenda Lowe.
3. Wakeboarding demonstrations.
4. The largest boat at the show - the 52' Carver.
5. Kayaks and kayak accessories.
6. Speedboats.
7. Captain Jack Sparrow.
8. Live trout pond.
9. Sea-Doos.
10. The party boats!

"Mercy Ships Canada: Mercy Ships has partnered with the Toronto Boat Show for the first time to raise awareness and donations for the world’s largest volunteer-run hospital ship. Mercy Ships Canada is part of a global charity with a mission to deliver free life-saving surgical care to impoverished children and their families, and has already impacted the lives of more than 17 million people around the world. Come meet the inspiring doctors, nurses and volunteers including Canadian Captain Mark Carew, who will be returning home soon from the ship’s current lifesaving mission in Cameroon."
The indoor lake will be a hive of activity during the boat show demonstrations of pedal boats, kayaks, canoe and boat rides, wakeboarding lessons, wakeboard and Waterskiing shows and indoor Sea Flea Races. At the Boathouse you can talk with boating experts, take in workshops and seminars.

Tickets are $20 Unlimited Weekday Evening Pass (4pm – 8pm); $25 Two-day Adult Pass (17 – 64 yrs.); $20 Two-day Senior Pass (65 yrs. & better); $45 Nine-Day Event Pass (excludes Preview Day). There is free weekday parking after 4pm.
