NH Boat Museum Hosts 2018 Ice-Out Celebration

The New Hampshire Boat Museum invites the public to kick off the 2018 boating season at its annual Ice-Out Celebration. This fundraising event will take place on Friday, April 13, at The Barn at Inn on Main in Wolfeboro. Reserve tickets ($60 for Museum members/$63 for not-yet-members) on-line at www.nhbm.org.

Festivities begin at 6:00 p.m. Enjoy hors d’ouevres and a cash bar while perusing silent auction offerings. Old favorites and noteworthy new items will be on hand, including vintage boat rides, themed gift baskets, one-of-a-kind pieces by local artisans, and gift certificates from area shops and restaurants.

After a buffet dinner at 7:00, a live auction ensues. Items include a private airplane ride over Lake Winnipesaukee, a limited-edition Peter Ferber print, and getaways to Proctor’s Lakehouse Cottages, Mills Falls at the Lake, and Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunkport. All funds raised will support museum operations and educational programs throughout the 2018 season.

The Museum will open for the season on Saturday, May 26.
