(St. Augustine, Fla.) – St. Johns County, 821 square miles of Outdoors and the rest is History. At its heart, St. Augustine was founded in 1565 as the last safe port for Spanish ships returning to Europe from the New World, St. Augustine is the oldest continually occupied city in the North America. In September of 2015 St. Augustine celebrated its 450th Birthday; in September of 2016 St. Augustine will celebrate the Inaugural St. Augustine Out- doorsman Adventure RV and Boat Show at St. Francis Field and the Municipal Ma- rina from September 16-18, 11am -7pm.
The show has everything outdoors for the novice and the expert alike; from hunt-ing, fishing, camping, golfing, sportswear,RVs, ATVs, Boat Clubs, outdoor products, outdoor services and the onsite financingyou need from 121 Financial Credit Union to take your new toys home from the show. At least that is the idea conceived by event founders Michael Cunningham and Mauricio Silva, longtime residents of St. Johns County. “We are not the ex-perts”, added Michael Cunningham, “but we love the outdoors and bringing theexperts with their gear to St. Johns County just made sense. I visit boat shows, RV shows, guns shows, survival shows and I learn something new every time; why not have all at one show.”
After 2 years of planning, partnering with headline sponsor 121 Financial Credit Union and the St. Johns Business Network the day has come and St. Augustine’s new favorite event is born. St. Francis Field will house the main tent with 60+ exhibi- tors, RVs and Campers from Ocean Grove RV, Boats from Sunrise Marine, Well-craft, Nautical Ventures, and Atlas Yacht Sales just to name a few. Check out the ultraquiet ATVs from Pure Power Sports and the not so quite toys from Overbuilt Customs and Big Boy Play Toys. Take a Trolley ride on Old Town Trolleys from the Event Field to the City Marina to view the yachts, paddle board demonstrations and more.
