MBIA brings Fourth Annual Boating & Outdoor Festival to Lake St. Clair Metropark
Summer's last weekend may be here, but the fun on the water continues, as The Michigan Boating Industries Association (MBIA) brings the Fourth Annual Boating & Outdoor Festival to Lake St. Clair Metropark, in Harrison Township, now through Sunday, Sept. 22. Much more than just a boat show, this event features outdoor recreation exhibits, live music entertainment, specialty areas and much more!
Come see the colorful sailing personality Bob Bitchin; swim in the Be A Diver SCUBA Pool where patrons, 10 and older, can learn how to scuba dive for free; see the haul brought in by the Angler’s Dream Bass Fishing Tournament and more! Live music will entertain at the fun Tiki Bar located centrally in the Festival. A full music line-up is posted on www.boatingandoutdoorfest.com.
The Boating & Outdoor Festival features hundreds of boats on-land in and in the water for fishing, skiing, wakeboarding and cruising – plus paddle boats, kayaks, paddleboards and inflatables. There will be something for everyone’s budget and interest!
Kids will also have their own Kids Zone where they can meet a real live mermaid, jump in bouncy houses, walk and roll in the very popular Waterwalkerz, participate in Minnow Racing, and operate remote control boats.
