From Woodstock to Indianapolis, there's options in the eighth week of outdoors shows around Chicago.
The Chicago Maritime Festival is Saturday at the Chicago History Museum. Above Richard Adrianowicz leads the sea shanty, ``All Hands,'' last year.
Bob Clouser, Spence Petros and Eric Haataja headline the Great Outdoors Expo at Woodstock North High School. This has grown quickly into a quality show.
The Lake Home & Cabin Show opens today at the Schaumburg Convention Center.
One of the last great 10-day shows, the Indianapolis Boat, Sport and Travel Show continues through Sunday is at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
