With exhibitor space sold out and a full schedule of on the water activities, TMIA Chairman Brian Kent is confident the Expo will be a real crowd pleaser.
‘We have a large range of on the watercraft including kayaks, powerboats and jet skis’ says Brian, ‘in addition there will be marine suppliers who can give people tips on everything from fishing rods and reels, lures and water safety’.
One of the aims of the Expo and Water Festival is to encourage people out on to the water. The uniqueness of the site, Tauranga’s downtown waterfront means that watercraft can be displayed on and off the water. On the water activities will feature bath tub racing, free Seadoo jetski rides and demonstrations from rowers, racing boats, dragon boats and kayaks.
Tauranga Coastguard, Western Bop Sea Scouts, the Ministry of Fisheries and BOP Regional Council will also have stands and people on hand with advice and ideas. Families will be able to enjoy onsite refreshments along with the many dining options provided by Tauranga’s hospitality strip ‘The Strand’.
Admission is a family friendly $5 for adults with school age children free. Tauranga’s only ‘on the water boat show’ will be open Friday fourth and Saturday 5th November from 10am through to 6pm and Sunday sixth from 10am to 4pm.
