Seattle Boat Show organizers are joining the Seahawks band wagon as the Super Bowl approaches.
Show managers have decided to close the show at CenturyLink Field and South Lake Union one day early so exhibitors, event staff and showgoers can watch the NFL championship game between Seattle and Denver.
The show, which opens Friday, now will close at 8 p.m. Feb. 1, rather than the 3 p.m. closing scheduled for Feb. 2, the day of the Super Bowl.
Also, by special arrangement with CenturyLink Field, the show is 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 noon-2 p.m., except Wednesday and Thursday. Showgoers will be able to walk the turf and show their team pride leading up to the Super Bowl.
