It's back for it's 71st year, the Grand Rapids Boat Show! The broadest array of power boats ever…almost 5 acres of them, especially for the Great Lakes, are at the show this weekend!

At DeVos Place, downtown Grand Rapids, you'll find an incredible array of Motor Yachts, Cruisers, Runabouts, Fishing Boats, and Ski and Wakeboard Inboards. Pontoon Boats continue to excel in new designs, features and cruising abilities. As we see technology advancing at fast speeds, so are the  advancements in boats – hull designs, power systems and the creature comforts.

Swampmaster’s Live Alligator Show will be there. It is a must-see attraction for outdoor families and people of all ages! Master alligator educator Jeff Quattrocchi will be on-hand.
