If you are looking for an opportunity to have it all, sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and touches of fun and fantasy, then it is a must to come to Metropolitan Beach in Harrison Township this weekend for the Michigan Boating Industries Association 2nd Annual Boating and Outdoor Festival.

With Thursday being the opening day, the weather cooperated and provided a partially sunny and slightly breezy afternoon.  As the clock struck twelve, the people were already at the entrance waiting to be allowed in to see the show. 

And what a show it is.  Besides the fabulous boats - power, sail, kayak, small medium and large; there are jet skis; there are pontoon boats; there are parts and accessories of every kind; there are Cadillac cars; there is an Ultimate Playground provided by BRP, where you can test drive a Sea-doo, or an ATV, or a three wheeler; there is Duma, The Waterskiing Dog; there is Dora the Explorer; there are Bouncy Houses; there is a Tiki Bar, along with two others; there are food stations provided by Luigi's, Terry's Terrace, and Advantage Foods; there is a Fishing Village, there is an Art Alley; and there are friends and family, adults and kids enjoying themselves every step of the way.
