NEWPORT BEACH—After the wave of Fred Hall Shows that filled up the March calendar for anglers, boaters and outdoorsmen alike, boating fanatics will be excited about the return of Newport Boat Show; the show comes April 25-28. Beckoning the beginning of prime boating season, vessel owners – or those looking to buy a boat – will be able to enjoy the beautiful Newport venue, Lido Marina Village, for the premier in-water boat shows in Southern California.
The boat show, returning for its 46th year, offers access to the newest vessels available to the West Coast. Many boats will be in the water, allowing guests to board the vessels and view a variety of models firsthand. More than 200 boats and trawlers will be on display with no size limit – serious buyers will have a chance to view many luxury yachts.
For family members who wish to tag along – but might not be as excited about checking out yachts all day – there are many boutique and specialty shops to browse, as well as some of the best restaurants Orange County has to offer in the area.
Admission to the show is $15 for adults; military will receive a $5 discount with proof of identification and children 12 and under will be admitted for free. Parking is also free via shuttle boarding at Hoag Health Center.
Hours for the show are as follows: Thurs. April 25 12-7 p.m.; Fri. April 26 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sat. April 27 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sun. April 28 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
The show will be held at 3432 Via Oporto in Newport Beach and Hoag Health Center is located at 500 Superior Ave.
