The 2012 winter boat show season continues, with several more boat and sport shows going on this weekend and next. There are a ton of shows in all points of the United States, and even a couple of International shows. Are you going to one?  Here's the rundown...

Baltimore
Maryland's longest-running boat show is going on today through Sunday at the Baltimore Convention Center.

Cleveland
The Mid-America Boat Show, at the I-X Center in Cleveland, started last Friday and runs through this Sunday, but we didn't mention it last week (booo!). Turns out they had a food drive Tuesday and raised over 2,000 pounds of food (yaayy!)

Minneapolis
The Progressive Insurance Minneapolis Boat Show started today and runs through Sunday at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The event is celebrating 40 years.

Milwaukee
The Milwaukee Boat Show spans two weekends - this Friday the 20th, through Sunday, January 29. It is being held at the Wisconsin Expo Center at State Fair Park.

Germany
There is one non-US entry in this week's calendar - 2012 boot Duesseldorf International Boat Show. It begins Saturday, January 21 through Sunday the 29th.

The Professor and Mary Ann (AKA, and the rest!)
There are other boat shows this weekend in Idaho, Toronto, Kansas City, and Austin. Dates, times and links to the official event websites can be found on the First Boat boat show calendar. A few future shows are there as well, and we update the calendar regularly.
