DNC NMMA event
The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) organized a “Day on the Water” event during the 2016 Democratic National Convention (DNC) held in SureShade’s hometown of Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing on the Delaware River. 
As one of the event partners, SureShade hosted local, state and federal elected officials on their new demo boat, Shady Lady, for over a dozen cruises along the Delaware River to help showcase the Philadelphia waterfront and the economic importance of the recreational boating industry.
Here are some highlights from a Day on the Water on the Delaware River in Philadelphia!

SureShade’s goal was to show off the beautiful Delaware River and recreational boating
With the aft shade fully extended while underway it was a comfortable cruise for everyone – despite the 90+ degree day!!
