Bears, boats, moose and fun. The outdoor show begins Friday at the MetraPark
After a brief lull of events at MetraPark over the holidays, the schedule looks pretty busy over the next two weeks. Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias performs this Saturday (1/15) and two great shows are also taking place this weekend.
Why not check both?
Enjoy everything that happens outdoors at the Great Rockies Sports Show.
The Great Rockies Sports show merged with the MORE show in 2003/2004, said manager Bill Reier, Jr. The event is one of the largest consumer shows held at the Metra, and fans of the event look forward to looking forward to his return this weekend. . The event was canceled in 2021 due to the pandemic.
Check out the gear and meet outfitters and guides from around the world.
One of my favorite things about the show is seeing the awesome new boats and RVs on display. Even if you’re not currently in the market, they’re pretty fun to watch. The event features hunting guides from Africa, Canada and Alaska along with seminars and various other attractions such as the popular trout pond for children.
Participants may also encounter a famous bear, Tag the Kodiak. He’s a bit of a TV and movie star. Check out his Instagram, below.
Think spring and experience the show.
Other cool stuff from the show included a demonstration by outdoor photographer Nick Fucci with his seminar, The secrets of successful wildlife photography. Fisherman, guide and speaker Vern Gagnon will present Walleye fishing, equipment and techniques. Maybe I should check those two speakers. Also, new this year is The great tour of the moose. Tickets for the show are $7 adults, $3 children, 5 and under are free. See the show itinerary and full details HERE.
