At 3 p.m., the Vintage Water Ski Spectacular will start with six skiers, all on classic wood skis, carrying flags that spell out OSWEGO. Other events will include Lita Schiel Grigg recreating her experiences as a 1950s Lake Oswego water skier, and the Polka Dot Ex-press Skiers.

At 4 p.m., the Classic Boat parade, led by the Lake Corporation Lake Patrol Boat, will begin. Enjoy the beautiful sight of classic boats cruising the lake to Lake Grove Park.

Please join us on Sunday, August 17, for the 15th Annual Oswego Heritage Council's Collector Car and Classic Boat Show.  Enjoy over 300 collector cars and motorcycles at George Rogers Park; over 30 classic boats on the lake at the Lake Oswego Corporation docks; and on-land classic boats at the Foothills Park. PT 658 and a WWII DUK-W will be at the Foothills docks and tours will be provided.

A free shuttle, provided by First Student, Inc., will run continuously throughout the Show to all three venues.  Admission to all three venues is free to both car and boat owners and spectators.

In addition, at Sundeleaf Park, there will be a large model boat display and free wooden boats for children to color/float and take home. The model boat display, presented by the Portland Model Boat Association, will include 5 tents set up with a variety of model boats - ships, cruisers, military boats, and classic run abouts - plus 9' long replicas of the USS Missouri and the USS Alaska.

Youth judging of both the cars and the boats will take place during the show. The awards ceremony for the cars will be at George Rogers Park at 2 p.m. and for the boats at 2:30 p.m. at Sundeleaf Park.  Breakfast and lunch options will be provided by the Lions Club at George Rogers Park.
