Does the thought of summer have you ready to hit the open sea? Dust of your galoshes and head to the Novi Boat Show. It’s happening March 14-17, 2019, at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi and is sure to get you ready for boating fun. 

This annual show, which has been deemed the perfect time to buy a boat, features around 100 exhibitors and hundreds of new and overstock model boats, motors and boat trailers on display.

But there’s more to see than just boats. You can also check out personal watercraft, accessories, dockage and more.

Or, if you’re more interested in learning in about boating safety, sit in on the free six-hour official boaters safety course on March 16 to learn the rules of water safety and other safety tips. 

Registration for the course starts at 10 a.m., but space is limited so you may want to pre-register to reserve your spot. Those who pass the class will also be given free admission to the boating show, courtesy of Action Water Sports. 

But that’s still not all.

Families will also get the chance to meet with Mermaid Princess and Aqua Hero, get their faces painted, try out a boating or fishing simulator, play games, make a craft and much more.
