It’s time again for the Grand Lake Boat and Sport Show, which takes place Feb 28th through March 2nd at the Grove Civic Center.   This 17th annual event will again highlight boats and vendors from the Grand Lake area.

“We are really expecting a big show,” said Tad Jones, Executive Director of the Grand Lake Association.  “We have so many great boat dealers coming to the show and we always have a great selection of vendors.”

Vendors from the Grand Lake area will be bringing you everything you need to know about places to stay, the latest in fishing, and fun things to do both on the water and off the water.

The show hours are Friday Noon-5pm, Saturday 10am-7pm and Sunday 10am-4pm.

This year’s show will also include Free Admission for all attendees.  “We are excited to offer free admission this year,” said Jones.  “This will be a great time to do some shopping for the summer and for our area anglers, a perfect time to get their badge for the upcoming Grand Lake Extravaganza fishing event.”

GRDA will be providing free life-jackets, while supplies last, to children under 12 that come with an adult.  The life-jackets will be fitted by the Grand Lake Sail and Power Squadron.

Santa’s Old Broads will be the food vendor for the event.

Entertainment and prize drawings will happen throughout the show, with a Grand Prize drawing on Sunday at 3PM that will include a night’s stay at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tulsa, dinner for two at McGill’s, dinner for two at the Buffet and two rounds of golf at Cherokee Hills Golf Course.  You must be present to win all the drawings during the show.

Grand Lake boat dealers that are attending the show include Arrowhead Boat Sales, Good Watercraft, Honey Creek Marina, Indian Hills Marina, Legend Boats and Marine Max.
