Lumberjacks, eagles, boats: The Calgary Boat and Outdoor Show is back
By Brian Wells
The $22-million worth of boats on display at the BMO Centre means the 2020 Calgary Boat and Outdoor Show is back.
Taking place today through Sunday, over 120 exhibitors have gathered to educate, and sell Calgarians on everything outdoors. Last year, nearly 17,000 attended came to check out the largest show of its kind in southern Alberta.
This year's exhibitors include the Alberta Birds of Prey Foundation who have brought several birds for attendees to meet. Several other groups committed to wildlife, sustainability, fishing, and hunting also have booths on display.
Presenting her work is Marina Cole. At the show, you can watch her transform pieces of wood into amazing works of art with a chainsaw — something she started doing after attending the Edmonton Boat and Sportsman’s show, a similar event put on by the same organizers as Calgary’s expose.
Cole will be taking breaks for the West Coast Lumberjack Show, where you can watch axe-throwing, log rolling and other lumberjack competitions.
