Boat Shows on the Corners

There are nautical events on both the northeast and northwest corners of the lower 48, and several other boat shows happening this weekend.

Boat Shows in the Northeast
There are two nautical events in northern New England this weekend. You can celebrate the lake at the Lake Champlain Maritime Festival today through Sunday in Burlington, Vermont, or you can enjoy the coast of Maine at the 8th Annual Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show in Rockland, Maine.

Stuck in the middle
The Les Cheneaux Islands Antique Wooden Boat Show is this Saturday in Hessel, Michigan.

Too far to drive
If you stayed in South Africa for several weeks after the World Cup, and you like boats, then you're in luck. This weekend South Africa's biggest boating event, the National Boat Show, comes to the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg. Stick around for that, then go home!
