Great Rockies Sportshow Draws Crowd

BILLINGS -

Families from all around are in Billings over the weekend to visit the 28th Annual Great Rockies Sportshow.

Spectators said it's an opportunity to look ahead at summer vacations, while getting a front-row seat to Montana wildlife. Mountain lions, wolves, and boats - oh my! The Great Rockies Sportshow manager, Bill Reier, said the weekend's event will enhance your outdoor experience. "The show is special because everybody here in Montana and Wyoming grew up with an outdoor heritage. Everyone here loves the great outdoors. While we're kind of cooped up in the middle of winter, it's an opportunity to come down and get ready for out upcoming adventures, booking trips, and buying boats and RVs and things like that," Reier said

From fishing to fitness, the show offers fun for all ages. "It's kind of a community event all weekend long," Reier said.

Attendees, like Michelle Lang, said the show gives them something to look forward to, like camping. "The kids really like campers, we have camper, the kids like to look at them, and they're trying to convince me to get a new camper," Lang said.

The first-time show goers said it's a fun way to spend time with family and get ideas for summer. "We live in a beautiful state. It's good to get out and see what's available. It looks like there are some good booths one some good trips to see, ideas for summer, and you've got to plan your summer sometime," Lang said.

Show organizers said the Predators of the Heart Wildlife display is sure to draw a big crowd.

Organizers said the show will start again Sunday at 10:00 AM and end at 4:00 PM.
