Elgin Promotes Ports at London Boat, Fishing and Leisure Show

From February 21 – 23, 2014 thousands of visitors will attend southwestern Ontario’s largest, most comprehensive boat, fishing and leisure show at London’s Western Fair District. Elgin County Economic Development and Tourism will be exhibiting at the show to promote the Ports of Elgin campaign.

With a target audience of 20,000 consumers the show is a perfect opportunity to promote Elgin’s four portside villages to the London market. Each of these villages offers visitors a unique and rewarding experience. Port Glasgow in the western portion of the County is home to the Port Glasgow Yacht Club and Marina, the perfect spot to launch or charter a boat or relax on the beach. Port Stanley offers some of the finest beaches on the north shore of Lake Erie and visitors are delighted by the quaint boutiques and fine dining establishments that dot the downtown core. Port Bruce boasts some of the best Lake Erie Yellow Perch and Walleye fishing along Ontario’s southern coastline and Port Burwell is home to a provincial park, a historic lighthouse, a wind interpretive centre and the HMCS Ojibwa Submarine.
