The Upper Midwest Koi Club is having its fourth annual Koi show at the Bachman's Garden Center in Minneapolis. Koi pond hobbyists from around the Midwest will bring their fish to the show to be judged. Dozens of tanks will be set up to house the fish. Some Koi on display will be almost three feet in length and can be worth thousands of dollars. The first Koi shows were held in Japan decades ago, with different prizes going to the owners of the most colorful fish. The trend spread throughout Asia, North America and Europe within the last 40 years.

Water garden vendors will also be present at the show. If you are looking to acquire a Koi fish, there will be hundreds to choose from. They will also have products and ideas for all types of pond projects. Koi Acres will showcase all of the filtration equipment needed to keep a Koi pond clean. Their booth will be stocked with the latest in Koi pond tech, including the new electronic Sensafe Exact® 7+ Pond Test Kit.

The Koi come in a wide variety of colors including red, white, black, yellow, blue or even green. Mike Swanson of Koi Acres is giving a presentation on the different varieties of the fish in one of the many seminars at the event.

Admission is free. For $5.00, patrons can sign up for a tour of the 2010 KoiUSA Magazine Pond of the Year.

The event will be held Friday through Sunday, July 30th - September 1st, 2010.
