This time of year, there's often a boat show in St. Petersburg or Tampa. But the St. Petersburg Fall Boat Show this weekend is one of the biggest.
Hundreds of new and used boats will fill the Times Arena at Bayfront Center and the nearby yacht basin on the downtown waterfront. Vendors also will be on hand with boating products, fishing seminars and swimsuit fashion shows. The entertainment also includes children's activities.
The show begins at noon today and runs through Sunday. Hours are noon to 7 p.m. today, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $7 for adults and $2 for ages 6 to 12. For information, call toll-free 1-800-940-7642.
