Longview hosts Summer Boat Show

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - It is a toy store for those who love summer fun on the water and it is going on this weekend in Longview.

A wide variety of watercraft is on display at the Maude Cobb Activity Center for the annual Summer Boat Show. The free event showcases the latest in fishing and sports-craft and is a favorite with East Texans who like to spend summer time on our area lakes.

"[There are] three dealers representing three product lines - anything from bass boats, pontoons, sport boats, ski boats, we've got it," said Gary Nichols, with Nichols Marine.

"Well, we figured the bigger boats the bigger engines, the faster they go," said Tiffiany Cigich. "We're not really worried about how fast they go. So long as they look good, and we can have fun."

The Summer Boat Show continues at the Maude Cobb Center 9 a.m. - 8 p.m. Saturday, and 12 p.m. - 5 p.m. on Sunday.
