Organizers of the Dallas International Boat show report an increase in attendance for the opening weekend, Feb. 5-7, at Dallas Market Hall.

The attendance increase over 2009 started at 20 percent Friday, growing to 30 percent Saturday and 40 percent over Super Bowl Sunday last year, organizers said.

Marketing director Franklin Pillsbury IV said a number of area dealers purchased distressed inventory and are offering it at the show at a great savings.

"That, along with aggressive manufacturer rebates and deals, means that the Dallas International Boat Show provides a great place for consumers to compare and buy at a very advantageous price," Pillsbury said.

The Dallas show continues Thursday through Sunday.
