Community Gearing Up for Boat Show


By: Alli Harlan

The 68th Annual Indian Lake Boat Show is this weekend.

It’s an annual Spring event for the entire Indian Lake area, and beyond.

Boaters, campers, visitors, tourists, and residents look forward to this annual event which marks the beginning of spring activities in the area.

Every year, boaters and visitors come to the Indian Lake Boat Show and enjoy the fun and excitement of seeing the new and used boats on display.

Giveaways and door prizes will also be awarded throughout the weekend.

The event begins at 10 a.m. this (Friday) morning and will run until 6 p.m. Sunday.

If you are looking for a new boat, this is the best time to buy.

There are three dealerships located within 10 minutes of each other.

Stop in and check out each dealership’s open house.

  • Bud’s Marine, 7169 Co Rd 38, Huntsville
  • Spend-A-Day: Avalon & Used Boats, 457 E Main Street, Russells Point
  • Spend-A-Day Marina, 9481 St Rt 708 N, Russells Point

Bud’s Marine is gearing up with their theme “Our Lake’s Back.”

Bud Christman talks about how his team prepares:

At Bud’s, there will be over 20 sales representatives and employees to help you make the best purchase.

You can catch a special guest, Jon Cross, Ohio State Representative, who will be at Bud’s on Saturday.

The team has been planning this event all year and expects it to be the biggest show yet.

Customers will experience the largest discounts in three years.

They will also be able to snag the first pick of the new 2024 models.

Dealerships will offer hundreds of new and used boats during the weekend.

At Spend-A-Day Marina, they pull in extra staff from sister stores to be prepared for the big event.

Their theme this year is “Out of This Word.”

Monica Hurst talks about how they picked the theme:

Spend-A-Day will have accessories 20% off with extra specials if you purchase a boat during the weekend.

A popular boat right now at Spend-A-Day is the high-performance tritunes.

The two stores continue to work together, each year, to make the boat show a success.
