The Miami International Boat Show is prepping for its event at the Miami Marine Stadium for February 16-20. The tents are completely set up and the docks for the yachts in the basin are nearly done. Once again, no events will be held inside the actual abandoned Miami Marine Stadium.
After getting approval to have the Boat Show at the Marine Stadium in 2015 for 2016 and 2017, this may be the last year at this location as $45 million in special obligation bonds were approved by Miami City Commissioners to restore the stadium. Preservation architect Richard Heisenbottle was chosen to design the renovation of the Stadium.
