Boat the Blue Antique Boat Show
Port Huron Antique and Classic Boat Show Postponed
Port Huron, Mich. – July 16, 2020 –
The organizers of the Port Huron Antique and Classic Boat Show announced today that the September 2020 boat show would be postponed until September 10 & 11, 2021. With two of the most popular activities being the kid’s events and the boat rides for the public, it became apparent that the challenge of protecting the public became the deciding factor.
“I’m extremely disappointed that we have had to come to this decision,” said Mark Walker, Boat the Blue Committee Member. “It was our hope that a September date would have provided enough time to rid our Thumb Coast of the COVID-19 risk and that just hasn’t been the case as well as the lockout of our Canadian neighbors was also a contributing factor” said Lee Stevens, Boat the Blue Committee Member.
