Tours, talks and exhibits announced for "Clean, Green Boating Fair"

The Tacoma Liveaboards and Citizens for a Healthy Bay invite you and your family to the 1st Annual “Clean, Green Boating Fair” – a day of free boat tours, talks and environmental exhibits – on Saturday, May 2nd (Opening Day of Boating Season) from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Delin Docks Marina, across Foss Waterway from downtown Tacoma’s Museum of Glass.

The Fair will celebrate 20+ years of successful Superfund Cleanup activities and will show ways to protect our waterways while enjoying an exciting season of being on the water. With over 15 exhibits, 4 presentations, narrated tours of the restored Foss Waterway onboard Admiralty Yachts' Duffy electric boats and the City of Tacoma's "Baywatcher" vessel, a beautiful array of power, sail, and human-powered boats to enjoy as you walk the docks, and marine life visible as the tides rise and fall, the Fair promises fun for all ages.
