Muskegon is gong to be the home of something spectacular and quite honestly, it's an event that the rest of West Michigan only dreams they could pull off.  Let's be honest, in Michigan we're more than used to expos of all kinds.  From January through the end of March, if you can't find an expo that is of interest to you in some arena, convention center or even hotel with a big enough rental're having issues.  From golf shows to comic book conventions, car shows and home and garden events, we all roam around and "look, but don't touch" most of what we can only dream of while we collect goodie bags and free samples.  Well... come August, the way a boat show is done is going to take a dramatic turn for the better in Muskegon at Adelaide Pointe.  Muskegon Boat Life is bringing all of the fun of an expo and then some to both the water and the campus, and YOU are invited!



Meeting up with Roger Zuidema of Muskegon Boat Life and Ryan Leestma, developer of Adelaide Pointe on Tuesday along with some of the stakeholders in the project...the air was ELECTRIC!  There we sat looking at a map of the entire campus of Adelaide Pointe and what a canvas to paint on!  The project has been huge and as things begin to get ready to open, from the Muskegon Brewing Company to the marina and the housing on site, the pace and atmosphere on site is filled with life and belief in what's to come.  This boat show event in August too is being built to offer a little something for everyone.  We're going to share the complete press release below so you can see the size and scope of the initial group, and the work is under way to add in all of the extras like music, fun for kids and places for food trucks, vendors and more.  

This is actually to help serve as a recruitment for those who are looking to participate.  Take a listen to the discussion with Roger and Ryan above and check out the details below about contact information and how to become a part of this incredible event.  To become part of the fabric of Muskegon has been the goal of Adelaide Pointe since the inception and to see this first "big event" and the opening of the restaurant ahead and some of the things we thought were going away, but have actual improvements to the bike trails, renewed life on the point and the far end of Western Ave coming together, we're looking at a major step in the redefinition of our community and the place we hold in the state.  Here's the complete press release.
