24th Annual Scuba Show Again Features Wyland


Crowds roam about the Long Beach Convention Center visiting various booths during the 23rd annual Scuba Show in June 2010.

8:01am | Scuba divers and vacationers have one reason to head to the Long Beach Convention Center this weekend.

“America's Largest Consumer Dive Expo” is Saturday and Sunday. The show features more than 250 exhibitors, 49 seminars, door prizes and an all-day film festival.

Marine artist Wyland will be on hand painting live at the show while exhibiting a large portion of his artwork. Wyland’s appearance at last year's show drew large crowds of onlookers. On Sunday from noon to 3 p.m., the artist will bring up a group of children and guide them in creating their own masterpiece to be incorporated into a larger mural. Children are free with a paid adult admission.

The show’s hours are Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tickets are $12 at the door, cash only. Check with your local scuba stores for $2 off coupons. Visit ScubaShow.com for more information.
