Just prior to the fall hunting & fishing season
Kempton Fairgrounds Kempton Pa. to Host August 24th, 25th, 26th of 2012.
The Biggest Outdoors Sportsman’s Show in the East
When it comes to youth involvement everyone talks the talk but WE WALK THE WALK!
It’s almost show time.
What is arguably Pennsylvania’s most innovative outdoors show heads into its seventh season August 24th as the Lehigh Valley Hunting & Fishing Extravaganza opens its gates for the three-day, activity-packed Extravaganza at Kempton Fairgrounds in Berks County, a beautiful site overlooking the Blue Mountain and the home of Weaknecht’s Bow Fair for 15 summers.
The Friday noon through Sunday show will be chock full of activities for participants and spectators. Few shows offer as many hands-on activities geared to both kids and adults. Visitors can spend the day wandering the spacious fairground and stop by booths, demonstrations, displays, seminars and other attractions set up inside two large halls, under the roofed picnic pavilion and beneath the open sky. Be sure to allow sufficient time to peruse a variety of activities certain to entertain, educate and enjoy in this rain-or-shine event. From training dogs to shooting muzzleloaders, there’s something for everyone. Come early and stay late.
This is a family experience with adults from regional and statewide sportsmen’s groups volunteering their time and talents as youth mentors of Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and other youngsters attending the show.
“This has everything a regular sports show has – new products, sales of outdoor gear, outfitters, manufacturers with their new products and a heck of a lot more – even an outdoor Hunting & Fishing flea market,” said show co-directorBob Danenhower. “It’s focused on both kids and adults. It really is a family affair.”
