Lake Norman Boating Festival

We had a fantastic time at our inaugural Lake Norman Boating & Water Sports Festival last weekend! Those who came out to the marina were treated to fantastic food and drinks from local restaurants like Smoke Barbecue and Olde Mecklenburg Brewing Company, an impressive display of boats available for purchase, face painting and a bounce house for the kids, free vessel safety checks from the US Coast Guard Auxiliary, booths from national and local vendors, chances to win raffle prizes worth $3000, with proceeds benefitting the Heartest Yard, and last but not least, a surprise appearance by Greg Olsen himself! We hope you enjoyed yourself, and if you weren’t able to make it out, check out all the fun you missed in the photos below.
