Syracuse, NY; August 26, 2014.  The three-mastedschooner St. Peter that sits well-preserved in the freshwater of Lake Ontario a few miles west of Sodus Point is among The Great Shipwrecks of NY’s ‘Great’ Lakes featured in the signature exhibit at the mini-NY State Park at the 2014 Great New York State Fair.

The multi-faceted exhibit has land and water components, including an 18th century bateau replica, video, historic artifacts and scuba diving gear, a Treasure Chest for children, the 2014 Discover Clean and Safe Boating mini-mouse boat, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary mascot Coastie, and daily underwater research drone demonstrations in the reflecting pool at the Fair.

New York Sea Grant and The Great New York State Fair developed the exhibit in partnership with the Great Lakes Research Consortium, Great Lakes Seaway Trail, Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, H. Lee White Marine Museum, New York State Divers Association, and many others. The exhibit continues through September 1 at the Fair.
