Pittsburgh Boat Show Opens; Pittsburgh RV Show Continues (Fri., 1/12/18)
1) Attention all captains, mates, and even landlubbers—The Pittsburgh Boat Show is underway again for the 58th year. Check out the latest in boating including new boats and accessories all under one roof at the Monroeville Convention Center. Boating season will hopefully be here before we know it. 5-10 p.m. today. Continues through January 21. 105 Mall Blvd., Monroeville.
2) Would you like to travel more, but fret about leaving the comforts of home? Wouldn’t it be great if you could transport your house to the locales you would like to travel to? Well, with an RV (recreational vehicle) you can travel with an albeit smaller version of your house. Where can I see these small mobile houses you ask—at the Pittsburgh RV Show. There you’ll be able to see hundreds of different types and sizes of RV’s. In purchasing your own new or used RV you’re well on your way to staying in a beautiful serene setting or even overnighting in the parking lot of a Walmart.

David L. Lawrence Convention Center, 1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd., Downtown.
