ST. CLOUD - The St. Cloud Boat Show took over the River's Edge Convention Center.

This year's show was a three-day event that saw over ten different retailers and 35 different manufacturers of boats and docks. The show is the largest free boat show in Central Minnesota.

Miller Marine General Manager and boat show organizer Mike Zunker says the event has seen an uptick because the weather has been so warm.

"Everyone has a little bit of that spring fever, it really changes their perspective and everyone is in a better mood when its not 20 below and snowing. It's just easier to see yourself buying a boat when it's this warm already."

With the record warm weather, the St. Cloud Boat Show is helping boat buyers and sellers get a head start on the boating season.
