The show is put on by JBM & Associates, an event planning company out of Greenville, South Carolina.

It’s the largest show of its kind between Annapolis, Maryland and Tampa, Florida.

The gorgeous weather set the perfect stage for a fun time by the water.



“We feel like there’s a lot of positivity. Even though we’re closed tomorrow, folks are out here enjoying themselves, smiling, having a good time, visiting the vendors we have on the Riverwalk and the event lawn,” said Debbie Taylor of JBM & Associates.

The show was originally scheduled to run through Sunday, but organizers made the decision to cancel the event due to the threat of Hurricane Irma.
