Overland Park Boat Show – January 26 – 29
Overland Park Convention Center, 6000 College Blvd., Overland Park, KS
While not a Lake of the Ozarks event, per se, the Lake will be well represented at this annual boat show, where you can see the latest 2017 boats of every kind. This show is fun for the whole family and will get you ready to hop back out on our Lake this spring!
January is a quiet month at the Lake of the Ozarks, as everyone recovers from the holidays and settles in to stay warm and cozy in front of fireplaces. While once this was predominantly a summer community, it is a thriving, year round community now with wonderful restaurants and shopping. We encourage you to come down and enjoy the Lake in its winter clothes.
