30th Annual East Texas Boat RV & Camping Expo

Longview- The East Texas Boat, RV & Camping Expo is the largest and most exciting outdoor activity show in the Texas Lake Country. The Longview Chamber of Commerce hosts the annual East Texas outdoor expo and this year Nichols Marine is the official sponsor of this year’s exhibits, which will include the latest in recreational vehicles, boats and boating accessories, camping, fishing and outdoor recreation.

This amazing outdoor enthusiast event was started in 1982 by Dale Clark and Gene Brady, owners of Longview Marine, and volunteers for the Longview Chamber of Commerce. Early on, the event featured primarily boats and yachts from dealers within the community.

More than 60,000 square feet of indoor space at the Maude Cobb Activity Center and Exhibit Hall, plus additional outdoor exhibits will be available for the public to view all three days of this event. This year, 10,000-plus visitors are expected to file in for the expo.

This year there will be more than 150 boats, 100 RV/travel trailers, and 50 ATV’s and motorcycles from East Texas on exhibit during the three-day event. The Expo provides the perfect venue for families from across Texas to have a one-stop shopping experience for the outdoor recreational needs.

The expo will be fun for the whole family with activities around every corner. Clowns, a crappie tournament, KIDFISH, pony rides, RV adventure video and the royal white tigers are just a few of the activities that will be on tap.

If you love the great outdoors of East Texas make plans to be at the East Texas Boat, RV & Camping Expo in Longview this January. The expo is held at the Maude Cobb Convention and Activity Center at 100 Grand Blvd.
