Miami Boat Show Begins And More

Today is the first day of one of the world's biggest boat shows, and of some not-so-big boat and sport shows around the country...

Miami Boat Show
Some folks have been waiting for this weekend all year. It's finally time for the 2012 Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show & Strictly Sail, along with a bunch of other, not-so-big shows across the country. In fact, there are three shows in our neck of the woods this weekend (in the northeast).

Local (to us) Boat Shows
There's the closing weekend of the New England Boat Show in Boston (We went earlier this week and have pictures up on our new, local publication, NortheastBoater.com).

There's also a boat show in Syracuse in upstate New York.

Last but not least in the northeast, and even closer to home, is the Northeast Fishing and Hunting Show, in our back yard at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford. NortheastBoater will be on display at this show, too. Come by and say hello!

Believe it or not, in addition to the huge show in Miami, and the three shows in our northeast neighborhood, there are several other boat shows this weekend. There are shows in Minnesota, Memphis, Philly and Maryland, and two shows in Michigan.

Dates, times and links to the official event websites can be found on the First Boat boat show calendar
