It is Saturday, February 27th and it's the day of the annual Southwest Virginia Boat Show in Roanoke, Virginia at the Berglund Center. It is an annual event because when spring hits, everybody wishes they could be out on the water cruising along with the wind blowing through their hair. That's right, we can all dream of a fun day off but sometimes you need to have the right vessel to make that dream come true.
Of course, a new boat doesn't do you much good without a matching body of water to insert it into. Around here, there's no better place to put in than at Smith Mountain Lake. 22,000 acres of beautiful water with striking shoreline homes and beautiful unspoiled land surrounding you on all sides and this year it is especially important to discover the lake.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the lake being completed. The lake reached "full pond" for the first time on March 7, 1966. This year on March 7th, there will be a celebratory event at the Smith Mountain Lake State Park and a historical marker will be placed to mark the occasion.
During the entire year of 2016, there are events scheduled of every type and description to celebrate the anniversary. We have everything from historical tours to 5K races to wine tastings to a quilting show to a moonshine festival (I said we had variety). Events are occurring January to December so whenever you come to visit, something will be going on.
The Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce is spearheading the lake celebration and you can go to their website to find out more about events or to request a brochure of the scheduled events. The website is:
The Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce is a regular participant at the boat show and will have a booth again this year. My husband and I will be volunteering to work the booth from 2pm to 7pm today (Saturday) and we hope you will come by to see us and say hello.
So, right now; stop what you're doing and get going because, . . . . .
Today is BOAT SHOW day
