Update: After last weekend's frigid temperatures, some Minnesotans' thoughts are turning to spring. And whether you are thinking about buying a new boat this year or not, it just seems to make you feel good when you head to the Boat Show, which will be at the Minneapolis Convention Center on January 21-24.

Sponsored by Progressive Insurance, the show celebrates its 44th year this year. With the upper Midwest’s best selection of new boats and hundreds of booths showcasing the very latest in engines, marine electronics and accessories, there’s no better place to get a head start on a summer full of fun! From canoes to cruisers, from pontoons to personal watercraft, there are boats for every lifestyle, activity and budget. The four-day event is also the best time to buy, offering you a once-a-year chance to compare makes and models, secure insurance and financing and gear up with the latest accessories all at one time, under one roof!

Show hours are 2-9PM Thursday, noon to 9PM Friday, 10AM to 9PM Saturday, and 10AM to 5PM Sunday.

We will be talking to a Boat Show representative Thursday morning during the "All Request Middays" from 10-11AM.
