Bar Harbor, site of the annual Gull Lake Classic Boat Show, will host the 2015 International Antique and Classic Boat Show next Sept. 26-27, featuring more than 100 boats.

The international show is held in different parts of the country each year, and 2015 will mark the first time the show will be in Minnesota. This year's show is in New York.

When deciding on a site, a selection committee considers a venue on calm water, dock capacity and hospitality capacity. Bar Harbor will team with Madden's Resort to host the 2015 show.

On Saturday, Aug. 23, the annual Gull Lake Classic Boat Show featured 80 antique, classic and wood boats that lined the docks at Bar Harbor in Lake Shore. The crowd was constant all day.
