CFSB Center hosts annual outdoor show

For the 29th year in a row, the West Kentucky Boat and Outdoor show is coming to Murray.

Today, Saturday and Sunday, there will be more than 60 boats and 10 RVs displayed in the CFSB Center. The annual event is free of charge but donations will be accepted.

This family-friendly event will provide vendors and events for all ages. A separate section will offer merchandise from Pampered Chef, Avon and Scentsy.

The Hazel Women’s Fishing Club will also provide a pond for children to fish in and inflatables for children. To participate a donation is required.

An outdoor simulator will be available for visitors to take an amusement park-like ride to see and feel firsthand what being on a ranger boat feels like.

All donations from this event will be distributed evenly among four high school bass fishing teams in the area. In the past, more than $20,000 has been raised, and hopes are to continue with a bigger turnout according to Nancy Mieure, alumna from Hazel, Ky.

There will also be cash prizes up to $10,000. To enter, guests must register at The Murray Bank booth.

The boat show will also include seminars.

“This is a great opportunity for people to get out and look forward to all the spring events that are around the corner,” said Mieure. “I specifically want families to come out and feel welcomed into the season.”

The show will be open today from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
