LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It may seem weird to think about boats and RVs on a day when the high temperature is in the teens, but a lot of people are getting ready to head out to the Louisville Boat, RV and Sportshow.
The doors to the show are expected to open Wednesday evening at the Kentucky Expo Center. The show runs through Sunday, and promises to give outdoor enthusiasts everything they need: pontoons, speedboats and ATVs will all be displayed. More than 150 regional boat and RV dealers will be there, with interactive activities for families.
Not only is the show good for area businesses, but organizers say it also helps everyone escape the brutal winter weather.
"I think the recent cold has just brought it further to the minds of everyone," said Jennifer Thompson, a spokesperson for the show. "When are we going to see spring? We like to say it's sunny and 70 all the time at the boat and RV show."
Tickets are $10 for adults, while kids under 15 get in for free.
Last year the show brought in close to 40,000 people. Organizers are expecting just as many this year, despite the frigid temps.
