“We were thrilled with the turnout this year and look forward to continuing the tradition in an even bigger way next year,” said Summer Hoglund, director of MIACC, in a statement. “Our guests and vendors enjoyed themselves and the weather couldn’t have been better. Just another day in boater’s paradise.”
