Minocqua Welcomes 22nd Annual Wooden Boat Show

Grab your boat shoes, and spend the day surrounded by floating works of art at the annual Antique Wooden Boat Show in Minocqua. It's the 22nd year for the event, which is usually held on the last weekend of July.

The Boat House hosts the event every year, and it's completely free to the public. Any proceeds made through the concession stand and donations goes to the multiple sclerosis society.

Boat owners everywhere travel from as far as Florida to put their boats on display. Every year people usually see over 50 antique and wooden boats on display.

Gordon Moore, co-chair of the event, said he created the fundraiser portion nearly eight years ago for his wife Judy.

"My wife has multiple sclerosis. So while we're not gonna find a cure in her lifetime, we're hopeful that progress can be made for others," said Moore.

If you're interested in checking out the classic boats, there's still time! The last show is tomorrow, Sunday, lasting from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.
