The Boat Show is Coming to Los Angeles (Giveaway)

Giveaway is sponsored by the Los Angeles Boat Show

Have you ever dreamed of owning your own boat? Or want to get up close and personal with a million dollar yacht? Now is your chance! The 2014 Progressive Insurance Los Angeles boat show is coming to Los Angeles on February 6th through the 9th offering fun for the entire family to enjoy.


The 2014 Progressive Insurance Los Angeles Boat Show is not just for those looking to purchase a new yacht. During the event, there are lots of fun family friendly events happening including:

  • Kids’ Zone: surfing simulator, toy build-a-boat program and appearances by Nickelodeon’s Dora the Explorer.
  • New! Swampmaster Gator Show: Watch as the Swampmaster catches an 8-foot, 200lb alligator with his bare hands. Kids can also get up close to a baby gator.
  • Try-it Cove – get on the water, indoors: activities include stand up paddleboarding (SUP), kayaking and more.
  • Big Boat Row: See a spectacular fleet of big boats standing more than 
40 feet in length.
  • Discover Boating Hands-On Skills Training: boaters of all ages and experience levels can get behind the helm during a series of on-water workshops taught by USCG-certified professionals.
  • Welcome to the Water Center: resources for families looking to get started in boating.


Load the kids into the car seats, and head to Los Angeles this weekend for an action-packed day full of fun. Don’t have tickets? Don’t worry! We are giving away a 4-pack of tickets to the show for one OC Mom Blog family. Enter to win in the form below:
