We Like Big Boats, and We Cannot Lie

In-water boat show at Bay Harbor June 18–20
By Lynda Wheatley | June 12, 2021

Since buying your own yacht isn’t likely this year due to supply and demand issues, what’s the harm in dreaming bigger? The best place to do it is Bay Harbor June 18–20. That’s when the village hosts its annual In-Water Boat show, an event that draws dozens of drool-worthy vessels to the marina’s docks, as well as the latest and greatest in watercraft and boating accessories to the marina’s grassy grounds. Even landlubbers disinterested in looking at floating palaces will find there’s fun to be had; live music is also on the agenda — Chris Callaja on Friday night, and the Petoskey Steel Drum Ensemble Saturday Night — Bay Harbor’s on-site boutiques, eateries, market, and distillery will be open, and any kids in attendance will receive a free Bay Harbor coloring book to keep em entertained while the grownups play. The event starts at noon Friday and concludes at 3pm Sunday (Father’s Day, hint, hint). See www.bayharbor.com for more details.
