Sportsman show has something for everyone
Held March 13-16 at Lamar-Dixon in Gonzales
The 2014 Louisiana Sportsman Show offers one-stop shopping for all your outdoor needs.
The show, which is sponsored by Ram Trucks, will feature acres of boats, fishing and hunting equipment, ATVs, tractors and outdoor power equipment, and activities for the entire family.
More than 250 vendors will be at the show, offering acre upon acre of fishing tackle and hunting gear.
But there really are three shows held on the same grounds that weekend — all included in a single admission fee.
In addition to the Louisiana Sportsman Show, the Louisiana Sportsman Boat Show by Dow Louisiana Federal Credit Union is the place to be if you’re even thinking about buying a boat. The boat show will again provide one-stop shopping with special show pricing from all the major brands of bass, bay and pontoon boats.
Looking for a new piece of power equipment? That’s no problem, since the Louisiana Sportsman power equipment area will feature products by Kubota, John Deere, Toro, Stihl, Huskavarna and many other brands, ATVs, UTVs, golf carts and other forms of power equipment. Again, special show pricing will be offered.
And DLFCU can even offer on-site credit processing to ensure you can lock in the special pricing for the boat show and the power equipment show.
Admission is $10 per day.
