Norwalk Cove Marina will soon be even more of a boater's paradise as the Progressive Insurance Norwalk Boat Show takes to the waters Sept. 18 to 21.
The event will include a free boat ride on Long Island Sound, an animal adventure show, workshops on boat and motor maintenance and repairs and boating skills and an area to test out "stand up" paddleboards and kayaks with seminars, demos and tours. The new Miss Geico racing boat will also be on display.
Eric Stone will be playing some island-themed songs between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. that Thursday to Sunday.
There are also plenty events for the kids, including face painting, a small lake with paddleboats, a toy boat building and Nickelodeon's Dora the Explorer on Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 20-21).
Admission is free for kids 15 and under.
The boat show runs Sept. 18 to 21 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Paking will be available in the Calf Pasture Parking Lot. People who want to arrive by boat can dock at Norwalk Harbor and take a water taxi to the show docks for $5 per person.
