Seattle – Seattle Boat Show organizers have decided to pay homage to the home team by closing the BIG Seattle Boat Show at CenturyLink Field and South Lake Union one day early so that exhibitors, event staff and showgoers can watch the game with their friends and families. The show will close at 8pm on Saturday, February 1. That still gives boating enthusiasts nine full days to visit the West Coast’s largest boat show. The Show opens at 11am on Friday January 24.
By special arrangement with CenturyLink Field, the show is also allowing access to the field so showgoers can celebrate the Seahawks victory over the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. The field will be open from 12 noon until 2 pm (except January 29 and January 30). Showgoers will be able to walk the turf, experience what it feels like to be staring at the goal posts and setting up to make that winning kick, take pictures in front of the goal posts and show their team pride leading up to the Super Bowl. What better way could there possibly be to spend a lunch hour? Tickets to the Boat Show are $12.
“There aren’t many opportunities for the public to walk out onto the field,” says George Harris, president of the Northwest Marine Trade Association. “It’s going to be a pretty exciting and fun experience for a lot of people, and we’re thrilled that we are able to offer this opportunity to our guests in the lead up to the Super Bowl. Go Hawks!”
