SPECIAL ATTRACTIONS MAKE THE 1993 DETROIT BOAT SHOW THE PLACE FOR KIDS

 DETROIT, Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- As if 1,000 boats of all types, styles and sizes were not enough to keep any kid entertained for hours, the 1993 Detroit Boat Show has several other attractions lined up to make this year's show the highlight of any kid's winter.
 The nine-day event, scheduled for Jan. 30-Feb. 7 at Cobo Center, is celebrating its 35th year as Michigan's premier showing of new model boats, motors and trailers. But just because the boat show's getting up there in years doesn't mean it can't cater to the kids. This year's show will feature Aladdin's Lamp, the Nautical Village, and the D.A.R.E. boat as added attractions geared toward kids at the show.
 Aladdin's Lamp is actually a fully functional 16-foot boat located at the display of Wilson Marine. Its interior is designed after Aladdin's Lamp and has a cockpit that kids can actually crawl in and out of. After the show, this boat will be on the water, zipping around just as Aladdin did on his magic rug.
 The D.A.R.E. boat is another specially decorated boat -- but this one has a much more serious mission. D.A.R.E. stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education, a national program designed to teach kids across the country the skills they need to resist pressure to take drugs or join gangs. In 1991-92, 78,000 Michigan schoolchildren received the D.A.R.E. program at their schools. This boat will be a familiar sight and a friendly reminder to many of the children attending the boat show.
 The Nautical Village will also provide hours of entertainment for kids as they wander through the landscaped walkways watching the fashion shows, learning about the history of Michigan's lighthouses, and seeing nautical arts and crafts displays.
 Other attractions include antique and classic boats, offshore racers, and a limited quantity of free boating safety coloring books will be given out each day at the show while supplies last. Admission is $7 for adults, children younger than 12 are free with an adult, and senior citizens are free on Monday. For more information call, 313-393-4370.
