Organizers said there’s something for everyone at this year’s show.

“There’s a lot here to do, we have free trout fishing for the kids,” said Mitch Renfro, Renfro Productions and Management. “It’s one of the favorites for the people.”

The show also features about five acres of boats, jumping dogs and RVs.

“We have Harris pontoons, with a crown on the end. It’s fiber glass and it’s a tritoon with a huge motor, so it’s going to go 40 to 50 miles an hour,” said Joe Parker, Pine Crest Marine.

Many different motorcycles are also at the show for people do more than just look at.

“Outside of the just sit on experience, this is a full demo we have it on our jump start machine, so you really feel that instant torque and that exciting power,” said Anders Pigorsh, Harley Davidson of Indianapolis.

The Ford Boat, Sport and Travel Show runs until Feb. 23 and hours vary daily in the Blue Ribbon Pavilion, Champions Pavilion and Universal Window Direct West Pavilion.
