Stanislaus County Parks and Recreation is bringing a Boat Expo to the main boat ramp of Woodward Reservoir from Friday, April 20 through Sunday, April 22. Hours of the event are Friday, noon to 5p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The public is invited to come to the event for a day spent outdoors, perusing a variety of boats and sporting equipment, enjoying food, and spending quality time with friends and family.
“This event further supports the Department’s mission of providing family-friendly events throughout the year to our community.” said Jami Aggers, Director, Stanislaus County Parks and Recreation. “We’ve also invited many local businesses and organizations to participate as vendors and help us build a great event for our visitors.”
The expo will feature boat vendors from throughout the Central Valley, including Bob’s Marine of Modesto, Norcal Mastercraft of Discovery Bay, and C&C Marine of Modesto. Modesto-area motorcycle vendor Honda Kawasaki KTM will also be bringing ATV’s and motorcycles out to the event. For those that forget sunscreen, Crescent Work & Outdoor will be selling everything you need to enjoy a day outdoors at the reservoir.
All of this will be taking place on the main boat ramp at Woodward Reservoir, on 26-Mile Road, off Highway 120, north of Oakdale. Admission to the park is $10 per carload for Stanislaus County residents and $15 for out-of-county residents. There is no extra cost to attend the boat expo.
