Sunnyland's Silver Springs Event – Boat up the Ocklawaha
Want to boat up the Ocklawaha to Silver Springs? The “SILVER RUN” is about to happen!
The Silver Springs Antique Boat Show and boating event is back! This used to be an annual Sunnyland event. 2005 was the last time our fearless adventurer, Gerald Dake, led us up the Ocklawaha through the locks Moss Bluff, into the Silver Run and finally to the Springs itself!
Silver Springs –Nature’s Theme Park – is excited to have us back and it’s a wonderful opportunity for us to be allowed to bring our beautiful boats to spend a weekend in this beautiful park!
Mark your calendars for the weekend of May 14th – call Day’s Inn (352) 236-2575 for $50 per night “Sunnyland” rate– and plan to come! (Campers call Silver Springs Campers Garden $32.95 night.) Reservations for the hotel and the event are a must and availability for boats on water (IN THE PARK) and on land is limited so please starting thinking about this great trip and adventure!
Launch your boat at Gilbert Park in Mount Dora. Leave your luggage with our transporter. Pack a great picnic lunch and embark on a weekend of fun at Silver Spring’s Nature Theme Park.
Departure is scheduled for Friday morning about 8am – May 14th. This is a fun-fun-fun and relaxing trip of boating and sight-seeing. We arrive at Silver Springs and tie up for the weekend at the Springs allowing the public to enjoy seeing our boats –AND for us to enjoy the park, Sunnyland workshops, dinners & just some general R&R.
Registration forms will be available at this Sunday’s 2010 Boat Show Volunteer Appreciation Picnic –or- via email or phone request next week! Space is precious for tie-up at the Springs – so don’t delay in Registration/RSVP!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: For those who may have an interesting boat in process that they can transport, would like to display and discuss with the public, please consider attending as “Land Display.” We will be looking for a few finished boats and some works-in-progress for the public to enjoy.
