Bay Harbor In-Water Boat Show

June, 2024

The Bay Harbor In-Water Boat Show kicks off the summer season in northern Michigan as it’s typically held in mid-June over Father’s Day Weekend. This event gives attendees the opportunity to check out the latest in watercraft, boating accessories, and more.
