July 7, Gravenhurst: Today's the day – the 32nd Annual Antique and Classic Boat Society – Toronto chapter — Antique and Classic Boat Show. A little rain this morning will make the boats look even better today – boats like to be wet and the photographers will like the effect too. But it will get sunny again and there is so much to see and do. In one trip to the boat show, you can learn more about Muskoka's distinguished marine heritage than you could ever imagine. Ditchburns, Dispros, Dukes, Greavettes and the Alexander Graham Bell built Tolka that made Lake Rosseau home. C'mon on out from 9-5 today, Saturday, July 7. Say hi to your MNW editor in the Announce Tower. Celebrate Muskoka as North America's boatbuilding capital today at the Gravenhurst Wharf.
