Huron, Ohio (July 8, 2010) – Great Wolf Lodge® in Sandusky, Ohio, part of North America’s largest
family of indoor waterpark resorts and the ultimate destination for your next family getaway, has
partnered with Lake Erie Boat Week for 2010.
Lake Erie Boat Week is a national boating festival to be held September 7-12, 2010, headquartered at
the Huron (OH) Boat Basin, with activities to be held on Lake Erie and the Huron River.
Lake Erie Boat Week is a new event to the area, but is expected to attract 100,000+ people and
potentially $5-$10 million to the local Erie Islands economy. The Lake Erie Boat Week event will consist
of a Powerboat Regatta, "Fastest Boat on Lake Erie" Competition held on Lake Erie, and an APR
Powerboat Superleague powerboat race (100-mph boats), held in the Huron River and at the Huron
Boat Basin, in the massively popular Lake Erie Shores and Islands region.
