But if you want to see it, you'd best hurry. The show used to last for 10 days, but this year it will run only five days — from Thursday to Monday.

This year it will feature a pavilion about the Battle of Lake Erie, devoted to promoting the scheduled re-enactment this year of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry's famous victory over the British, which took place on Sept. 10, 1813, near Put-in-Bay.

i think i'll pass. This show used to be great but it really has dropped off. Same boats as last year, getting gouged for parking, and it is about 1/3 as big as it used to be. Cedar points show is actually better
