This new, in-water boat show will feature boats on shore and in the water, as well as many other outdoor recreation exhibits catering to the millions of outdoor-minded individuals in Michigan and surrounding states.

Boating and outdoor recreation offers health and well-being benefits and is easy, affordable and right in our own back yard."
