Wooden Boat Show set for June 1
Jul 21, 2015 at 12:40 PM
This will be the 10th show in a community rich in boating history, and nestled between the Grand River and Spring Lake, with only a short boat ride to Lake Michigan at Grand Haven.
The show attracts nationally known and other fine examples of wooden runabouts, utilities, canoes, kayaks and a classic-glass category as well. Boats from Chris Craft, Century, Hacker Craft and Lyman, to name a few, as well as many custom-built boats will be on display.
The show starts at 9 a.m. and continues until 3 p.m. with awards, and a boat parade down Spring Lake.
A children’s boat-building table and float-your-boat pond, food, music, a wooden kayak builder and various wooden boat vendors will be part of the show. There will also be a display and participation from the Tri-Cities Historical Museum.
The show is hosted by the Village of Spring Lake’s Historic Conservation Commission, whose purpose is to help identify, promote and preserve the area’s rich history.
