Summer may be over, but you’ve still got a chance to enjoy Lake Erie at Cleveland’s only in-water, free boat show, the Progressive North Coast Harbor Boat Show.

Nearly 100 boats — from small fishing craft to luxury motor yachts — will be open for boarding and demonstration rides.

You can also try a one-hour, hands-on “Pleasure of Sailing Experience” offered on a Jeanneau sailboat by Cleveland’s Riverfront Yacht Sales. And check out an eFoil hoverboard.

“This show is the final big sales event of the season for dealers,” said Michelle Burke, president of the show organizer Lake Erie Marine Trades Association. “So it’s as much a buyer’s show as it is a great opportunity for people thinking about getting into boating to explore many different styles and sizes.”

The show takes over the Rock and Dock Marina north of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Here’s when you can go:

Sept. 13 at 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Sept. 14 at 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Sept. 15 at 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
