LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Every invention and innovation for outdoors men and women is on display in East Texas this weekend. The 28th Annual East Texas Boat, RV and Camping Expo is underway at Maude Cobb Activity Center in Longview.

Big boats, small boats, fast boats, jet-skis, big four-wheelers, small four-wheelers , two-wheelers and 3-wheelers. It is almost more than you can absorb.

"I like the 4-wheelers and the boats and the carts and all...the new stuff," said Milton Cabbiness.

You can price a hot-tub, drive the straightaway at Daytona on the NASCAR simulator, or try the unusual 3-wheeled motorcycle, with two front wheels!

"Well, I was in the market for a travel trailer or maybe a pontoon boat," said Cris Bell of Grand Saline.

"We're looking for a fishing boat that's got enough room for our kids to fish and enjoy the ride," said Heather Lott, a Lake Cherokee resident.

There is something for everyone, whether you are a camper or fishermen. Some have visited the show many times, and keep coming back to comparison shop all in one place to get the best deal.

"We've been taking a look at all the different models and different options to see what we might like better than one - we like this one? Well, let's go compare it to this one," said Lott.

"Well, I like the toys," said Milton.

The show continues at Maude Cobb Friday until 8pm, Saturday from 9am-8pm and Sunday from 10am-5pm. Admission is $6 for adults, $1 for children 6-12 and children 5 and under are free.
