Despite the rain and clouds, many people were in attendance at the 37th annual Central Valley Sportsmen’s Boat, RV, and Outdoor Show.
According to Mike Hatcher, one of the event coordinators, this is the largest sportsmen show that the Kern County Fairgrounds has ever hosted. The show ran Feb. 28 to March 2.
Among some of the things to see, the show featured live music, field and agility dog trials, and fly tying and casting competitions.
Galey’s Marine Supply was showing off its new fishing boats featuring boats with names like Bayliner and Moomba in Sports Hall 1.
There were many vendors showing off their products in halls two and three. There were hunting supplies, fishing and camping supplies, and spokespeople from a few different lodges to tell you about what they have to offer.
A number of new RVs and motor homes from DC’s RV Center, RV Peddler, and Camping World lined the roadways of the fairgrounds.
For those that like speed and loud noise, Bako Sand Drags was there for its seventh year, kicking up the sand in the Belle Terrace lot.
The So-Cal National Tractor & Truck Pulls, which are sponsored by DC’s RV Center, had been rescheduled for April 4 and previously purchased tickets can be used for this event. The kids were not left out of the fun, as there were bounce houses, rock walls, laser tag, youth archery, and a kid’s trout pond.
For the car enthusiast, the Bakersfield Car Club Council held its 18th annual Super Cruise Car Show on March 1, in conjunction with the sportsmen show.
Admission to the show, which was presented by Bill Wright Toyota and North Bakersfield Toyota-Scion, was $10 for adults, and $5 for kids between the ages of six and 12.
