Spokane Boat Show will hold a ‘boat parade’ instead of a regular event

SPOKANE, Wash. — The Spokane Boat Show is back, but with a new twist.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, the event will not take place at the Spokane Fair and Expo Center. Instead, they plan to hold a “boat parade” with local boat dealers opening their showrooms to the public from January 27 to February 6.

The Spokane, Spokane Valley and Northern Idaho boat show dealerships are all hosting the event. They hope to showcase the latest boat models, accessories and boating equipment, just like the traditional boat show.

Inland Northwest dealerships are coming off a banner year for sales, so they’re eager to showcase the latest in the boating industry.

Although they wish they could put on the typical spectacle of the event, the concessionaires still hope to give locals that “fun on the water” feeling.

The Dealer Group will have extended hours for the event. Visit www.spokaneboatshow.com to see participating dealers.
