PIKEVILLE – The East Kentucky Sport, Boat & RV Show, sponsored by Eastern Kentucky Expo Center and WYMT, will begin on Friday. The show serves as a kickoff to the camping season. This year’s event will begin Friday and run from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. The show will run Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
This year’s vendors include Summit RV of Ashland; Days RV of Corbin; Pikeville RV of Pikeville; US 23 Camper Sales of Louisa; Great Outdoors Marina of Lavalette, W.Va.; KOA Campgrounds of Huntington, W.Va.; Honda of Prestonsburg and Greg’s Custom Audio.
In addition to the vendors, Pikeville Medical Center will also be on hand to do free health screenings.
“We have been participating in this event every year since it began nearly 15 years ago. It is a great way for us to meet and talk to customers about something we are passionate about. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t riding 4-wheelers, boats, and going camping. Camping is a way to spend quality time together,” said Ed Reynolds of Pikeville RV Sales.
Area residents are invited to bring their entire family and browse the newest models of RVs, four-wheelers, side by sides, pontoons, bass boats and more. This year’s event promises great deals and fun for everyone. The children will enjoy fishing in the trout tank while dad shops for his newest summer toy. Admission is set at $5 for adults. All children will be admitted free.
