Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - The 31st Seaside Boat Show is in full swing this weekend at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center in Ocean City, with hundreds of boats, boating accessories and jewelry.

There are more than 350 boats, 150 exhibitors, 50 boat dealers, all offering a number of special show prices.  The boat show, put on by the Ocean City-Berlin Optimist Club, raises money for local youth programs.

"The Optimist Club, Friend of Youth, has many community service youth programs.  That's where we use the proceeds," says Charles Smith, with the Optimist Club, "that funds Girl Scouts, Boy  Outs, the We Excel Banquet, our Reading Is Fundamental, Project ID, where we fingerprint children, and all the recreation programs from Selbyville to Pokomoke."

The optimist club also holds an annual scholarship lottery on the final day of the Boat Show.  Sunday, at 5pm, a $75,000 grand prize will be announced.  Chances are $100, and can be purchased at the Boat Show.

The Seaside Boat Show runs through February 16th from 11am to 5pm.

Admission is $10 for adults and $1 for kids.
