Whitefish Chain Antique & Classic Wood Boat Rendezvous ~ June 21, 2014
Tomorrow, June 21, 2014 is the annual Whitefish Chain Antique & Classic Wood Boat Rendezvous. This tradition started out 27 years ago, as a simple gathering of 12 or less owners/skippers who share a love for these antique and classic boats. Over the years this gathering of boat lovers has grown to become a special community event in this little Minnesota town of Crosslake. In 2013 there were over 70 skippers sharing their beautiful boats with the public. Approximately 12,000 viewers attended. Some of the country’s most affluent wood boat collectors make their home here in the lakes area, and bring out some amazing boats every year. The craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into these works of art is enough to leave you in awe! Me thinks the festivities kick off around noon with a parade of boats in the afternoon, but this writer doesn't know the exact times, and can't find them anywhere on their website. Just look for a lot of wood boats at Moonlite Bay tomorrow...they're hard to miss, and very, very, cool.
