SYRACUSE — A cool lake breeze greeted those walking out onto the pier and boat slips at Oakwood Resort to view the variety of wooden and antique boats on display Saturday, June 22.
The show began at 10 a.m. with boats arriving for the annual Lake Wawasee Wooden Boat Show. More were expected in the early afternoon.
But the pier area wasn’t the only place to get an up close view of the wooden boats. There is also an on-land display area for those who prefer to leave their boat parked on a trailer. These boats were found on the lawn near the Event Center.
The show runs until 4 p.m. today. A late day Thunder Run around Lake Wawasee will follow.
Many of these boats are seen each Sunday morning for a Thunder Run around the lake, but the show gives people the opportunity to get an up close look at the wooden boats of yesteryear.
This event is not a judged event. The show is open the public with no admission.
