Families in the market for the latest watercraft, marine gear, motor home or camping accessories ahead of this year's outdoor season can visit the 57th annual Tulsa Boat, Sport & Travel Show running through Sunday at the Expo Center.
In addition to finding a selection of the newest products in the RV and camping markets, attendees itching for the upcoming Bassmaster Classic can get fishing advice and sharpen their angling skills at the show.
Some of the country's leading pro fishermen will be talking about the sport, signing autographs and giving seminars on the latest techniques and technologies.
Sportsmen who want to enhance their fishing skills can stop by the Oklahoma Bass Tub, a 40-foot-long aquarium turned habitat for 30 to 40 fish of various species.
Other events include appearances by Skipper Bivins and Trent Jackson, hosts of Animal Planet's TV series "Hillbilly Handfishin'," as well as stars of National Geographic Channel's TV series "Mudcats."
Event parking is free for all attendees. The show runs Thursday and Friday from noon to 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
General admission tickets for adults are $10. Children 12 and younger are admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult. A kid's zone can be found in the northeast corner of the lower level of the Expo Center.
