If you couldn't get to the main event in Miami last weekend, don't worry, there are still plenty of boat shows to help get you through these last few weeks of winter. This weekend, in fact, there are nautical events all over the country, including Georgia, Colorado, Massachusetts, Maryland and Maine. There's even a show up in British Columbia worth mentioning.
But we're really jazzed about the big Greater Philadelphia Boat Show which begins this time next week - it's slated to be Philly's largest boat show in 7 years, and admission is only $8 with a coupon from the website: www.phillyboatshow.com
Our boat show calendar has details on these and other upcoming boat shows, and this weekend's events are detailed after the pic...
This Weekend's Boat Shows
February is behind us, which means we are now in the same month in which spring officially begins. The first weekend of March may find many in North America shoveling snow, but at least we are one month closer to boating season. Perhaps these boat shows will help pass the time. Here's the weekend rundown...
Greater Philly Boat Show - Okay, this one doesn't even start until NEXT weekend, but we wanted to make sure you started getting ready for it now. This year's event is at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks from Friday, March 8th through Sunday, March 10th.
Meanwhile, if you're looking to do something tonight, Saturday, or Sunday, check out the Baltimore Boat Show at the Baltimore Convention Center, which we gave away tickets to last week.
Also this weekend, the Colorado RV, Sports, Boat and Travel Show seems to have it all from the sound of the title. If you are in Denver, stop by the National Western Complex and let us know how it is.
This weekend is also the Northern Illinois Boat Show, which claims to be the largest of its kind in Northern Illinois. This show is at the New Lake County Fairgrounds in Grayslake.
New York has two events this weekend. The Buffalo Boat Show started Wednesday and runs through Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium. And the Suffern World Fishing and Outdoor Exposition is happening at SUNY Rockland Community College in Suffern.
Over in New England, the 10th annual Portland Boat Show is going on this weekend at the Portland Sports Complex in Maine. There are a few other boat shows over the next couple of months, so make sure you check our calendar and head to the one you intended to.
Down in Georgia, head on over to the Savannah Boat and Outdoor Show at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center.
Lastly, Canada weighs in with the BC Boat and Sportsmen's Show at Tradex in Abbotsford, British Columbia.
