The Annual Lake George Rendezvous is set to bring around 50 antique and classic boats to Lake George on Saturday August 25th, from 9 am to 4 pm.
Now in its 45th year, this free boat show is held at the Lake George Village public docks on Beach Road and is open to the public. On display will be antique, historic, unique and classic boats from the early 20th century through today.
There will be rare, restored award-winners, including mahogany speedboat runabouts, early double-ended launches, classic Chris-Crafts, Hacker-Crafts, GarWoods, early outboards and classic, restored mid-century fiberglas models.
Children are invited for a free ride around the waterfront in Adironduck, a 10-foot 1950s Chris-Craft Racing Pram wooden kit boat replica, powered by a vintage Mercury engine. It was begun onshore at the 2007 LG Rendezvous by 12 youths and a handful of ACBS volunteers.
The boat show is sanctioned by the Antique and Classic Boat Society (ACBS) and organized by one of its founding chapters the Adirondack Chapter of the ACBS.
Land displays and tents set up by boating-related vendors and Lake George preservation groups will provide added information. The Adirondack Chapter’s own Ship’s Store will sell boat-themed shirts, hats, posters and other items.
Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite boat by picking up a ballot at either the Ship’s Store or the show registration table.
