Boatbuilding takes center stage at museum event

Whether the vessel took years to complete or just a few hours, you will see plenty of both at the Classic and Wooden Boat Show. Boat owners across the Midwest bring their vessels to show off in the Door County Maritime Museum's parking lot and ride around Sturgeon Bay's waters. One of those cruises will be a part of the classic boat parade at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday ahead of Destination Sturgeon Bay's fireworks display. During the Classic and Wooden Boat Show, you will also see teams of two try to construct a boat of their own using nothing more than a few pieces of plywood and a marine adhesive before they take them through a course in the bay as a part of the Sunday time trials. Whether it is one of the classics or one participating in the Sikaflex Challenge, Sam Perlman from the Door County Maritime Museum says people are proud to show off their vessels during its signature event.

The Classic and Wooden Boat Show takes place at the Door County Maritime Museum on August 6th and 7th. You do not need a boat to participate as there will be plenty of activities, food, drinks, and music for people to enjoy during the weekend.
