The Louisville Boat, RV and Sports show returns to the Kentucky Exposition Center Jan.20-24 and the promoters have made some changes.
One of the biggest changes is the shortening of the show to five days in order to make it more accommodating for both visitors and vendors.
“We were one of the few 9-days shows left, most show are only 4 or 5 days,” said show manager Kim Muncy. “We have really good attendance on weekends and very slow the early part of the week. It has been proven that you get as many people through the show in 5 days as you do 9. We think it will bring a renewed energy and excitement to the show with more people in the aisles instead of spreading attendance out over a longer period.”
New for the show this year:
KDFWR Hunting Pavilion with laser shooting, and a 'big buck contest', Beatty Buck, etc.
FLW Boating/Fishing simulators which are a part of the Take Me Fishing Center sponsored by the RBFF.
Trout Fishing is FREE for kids this year.
Miss GEICO – Fastest offshore racing boat, capable of going 185 miles an hour.
The show hours are:
Wednesday, January 20……5pm – 9pm – Customer Appreciation Day, Admission $5 ($3 savings)
Thursday, January 21…..…12pm – 9pm
Friday, January 22………...12pm – 9pm – Ladies Day, Ladies Admission $5 ($3 savings)

I will be there each night, and will have interviews with some of the guides and vendors to write about here in order give an overall feel for the show. If you happen to see me, please feel free to strike up a conversation.
