Skaneateles, NY Hosts Antique and Classic Boat Show

Scores of gleaming wooden boats—lovingly preserved or restored—line the pier, recalling a bygone era. Lake waters glisten. Families stroll Clift Park, enjoying the strains of the Soda Ash Six. It must be Skaneateles in July.

The 31st annual Antique and Classic Boat Show, organized by the Finger Lakes Chapter (FLC) of the Antique and Classic Boat Society and the Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce, sails into town July 24-26.

Upwards of 80 boats are expected from across the United States and Canada. They will be displayed in the water and on land, and may be viewed by the public Friday from 3 p.m. to dusk, Saturday from 9 a.m. to dusk and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
