Who even realized there was a market for marine fleas?
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, February 11 to 13, come check out the giant boat corral at the South Florida Fairgrounds. It's just like it sounds, a big pen with a bunch of boats pining for freedom. They're all for sale, so it's similar to a huge cattle feedlot, only without the smell and the auctioneer.
The flea market is all about pieces/parts, so you can scrounge for items your craft might be missing.
And when you get hungry,
they've got you covered too. Local vendors are still being corralled for their tastiest seafood items.
The seafood festival might be completely overwhelmed by the sheer mass of the yachtage on hand -- who -- knows? Worth checking out, especially if you want to see what a boat corral looks like.
The event runs Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $7 a day, $5 for seniors, and kids 12 and under are admitted free. A three-day pass costs $12.
