Dreaming of Outdoor Activities? Come to Early Bird Sports Expo

By Nancy Bishop

If you would rather fish, kayak or ride your ATV than go skiing and you’re dreaming of Spring while watching the snow pile up outside your window, then the Early Bird Sports Expo should be your destination.

Opening Thursday, Jan. 23, at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds, the 32nd annual event features more than a hundred vendors and showcases boats, RVs, ATVs, outfitters, hunting and fishing equipment, kayaks, the area’s finest taxidermy work, artists, sportsmen’s groups and archery suppliers. It runs through Sunday, Jan. 26.

One of the returning vendors this year is Pond Craft Boats, which will be showing off their newly designed Custom-Built Pontoon Boat for the 2020 season. Check out the many available options and accessories that will be shown. Picture yourself on one of the area’s many lakes and other waterways in a pontoon boat built to your specifications!

If you build up an appetite while walking through the Fairgrounds buildings dreaming of summertime fun, then check out the food vendors offering everything from pizza, soup and subs to dessert. Steph’s Subs of Bloomsburg will be one of those offering food to tempt you.

And if you’re a patch collector, don’t miss the Expo’s commemorative patch designed by artist Ken Hunter of Muncy, who also will have a booth at the show.
