An expanded Progressive Catawba Island Boat Show returns May 1-3 at the Catawba Island Club in Port Clinton, Ohio.

The in-water show will feature more than 100 sail and power boats, ranging from center consoles to 60-foot motoryachts. New models that northern Ohio dealers have received since the winter boat show in Cleveland in January will be emphasized.

The show also has daily live musical entertainment, a special Ohio wine-tasting event, a craft beer celebration and continuous Discover Sailing rides.

Now in its 11th year, the show has become recognized as the opening event of the summer boating season on Lake Erie, organizers said.

Admission and parking are free and it’s the only time each year that the Catawba Island Club is open to the public.
