Lake Arrowhead, CA – The annual Antique & Classic Wooden Boat Show returns to Lake Arrowhead Village on Saturday, June 10, 2017  from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This year’s Antique & Wooden Boat Show is sponsored by the Rim of the World Historical Society; in association with Lake Arrowhead Village, the Arrowhead Lake Association, the Up The Hill Woodie Club, and the Antique & Classic Boat Society.

They are expecting up to 40 boats and 35 cars. The featured boat this year will be a 1958 Chris Craft Continental Hard Top, named “Tiger Lilly”. The boat was built for Walter O’Malley, former owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers.


Vying for various trophies, the antique and wooden boats will be moored at the Lake Arrowhead Village docks, where they can be viewed up close by the public. There will be a $5.00 admission fee to see the boats, and no charge to see the Woodie Cars.
