MILLERSPORT – The Buckeye Chapter of The Antique and Classic Boat Society has a new home for their annual show.

The show is moving from the Buckeye Lake Yacht Club to the historic Ohio Erie Canal in Millersport. The beautiful vintage boats will be moored at canal docks along Canal Drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 19. The chapter is expecting nearly 40 entries for the only sanctioned judged show at Buckeye Lake this year.

Classic cars will be on display at the American Legion hall on Canal Drive as the Millersport Lions Club moves their monthly Cruisin’ on the Commons car show from Friday night to Saturday. Enjoy the boats and cars and small town hospitality. Stay around to watch the boat parade at 4 p.m. to the awards ceremony at NorthPoint Island. Both shows are free and everyone is invited.
