The 2011 Norwalk Boat Show will feature an expanded array of brands, merchandise and hands-on activities.
"It's going to be bigger this year," said Thom Dammrich, president of the National Marine Manufacturers Association. "It's a great venue. There's lots of fun and entertainment as well as an opportunity to learn."
The 36th annual show, set for Sept. 22-25 at the Norwalk Cove Marina, allows customers to browse through hundreds of boats – from motoryachts and sailboats to kayaks – as well as other nautical equipment and accessories.
