The International Boat Show-Jan.,9th-18th,2015@Direct Energy Centre, C.N.E.

It’s the beginning of January and it’s super cold right now! The Boat Show put a little sunshine in our cold lives while we count the days before we can set sail or place our canoes in the water. This was an enormous event with acres of Boat companies showcasing their beautiful boats and accessories. Also Mary Ann aka Dawn Wells of “Gilligan’s Island” fame will be at the show to meet her fans during the whole week. The organizers converted Ricoh Centre hockey arena into a gigantic swimming pool. You don’t have to be a Boating enthusiast to enjoy the activities during your visit to the show. There’s something for everyone who’s waiting for the first day of spring. The Boating show runs from Jan 09th to 18th 2015. Then the show goes to Vancouver Jan.21st to 25th at the BC Place and Granville Island. A big thank you to Holmes P.R. for their hospitality for the preview showing of the Boat Show at the Allstream Centre this past weekend.
