LAKEWOOD - Boat owners and prospective boat buyers will head to Lakewood this weekend for the state's last major boat show before the winter season.

The event will feature a large number of new vessels, as well as a number of pre-owned boats. Organizers say people who lost their boats in Sandy may be unwilling or unable to shell out for a brand new boat, thus making a used one a more practical option.

Organizers also add that Garden State residents are gradually returning to buying mode in the wake of completing home repairs prompted by the storm.

The show will run on Saturday and Sunday at FirstEnergy Park, the home of the Lakewood BlueClaws.
