Apalachicola will host the 15th Annual Apalachicola Antique & Classic Boat Show Saturday, April 20, 2013.  Antique boats, examples of classic and traditional vessels, workboats, and fiberglass and aluminum classics will all be on display throughout the day.  This festival emphasizes the maritime history of our picturesque coastal town.  Special highlights include authentic oyster boats, workboats, and home-built boats by skilled craftsmen, antique outboard engines, plus antique automobiles and art booths.  The 1877 two masted, gaff-rigged schooner the Governor Stone will be docked at Riverfront Park for the festival and the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve will have displays on the Apalachicola River and its flora and fauna, plus demonstrations on oyster tonging. The 50 foot long Apalachicola Traders’ Canoe will be on display at the Cotton Warehouse on Water Street. The Apalachicola Maritime Museum will host the St. Petersburg Shanty Singers for a program incorporating history and maritime music of significance to the Apalachicola River and Bay from 7-8 to be followed by a shrimp boil on the docks.   For information please call (850) 653-9419 or email us at info@apalachicolabay.org. http://www.antiqueboatshow.org/
