Midwest show returns to Cleveland in January

The 2015 Progressive Mid-America Boat Show is set to dock for five days in Cleveland’s I-X Center Jan. 15-19.

The show will feature offerings that range from musical entertainment to re-enactments of the 1812 Battle of Lake Erie.

“Keeping with the concept started two years ago of transforming the show from just a boat exhibition to a winter boating rendezvous, we’ve added more live entertainment, educational offerings and hands-on activities this year, plus an expanded fleet of over 400 boats occupying nearly 20 percent more floor space,” manager Ken Alvey said in a statement.

The Mid-America Boat Show offers a lineup of top-earning tournament fishing pros daily in Fish School; more than 30 clinics on topics such as sailing, cruising and cooking with experts in Lake Erie University; and interactive pirate stage shows, Water Wheelz and fishing clinics for youngsters.
