The Delmarva Outdoors Expo 2019 Is Packed Full Of Activities And Attractions
The Third Annual Delmarva Outdoors Expo is April 26 – 28th and has something for the entire family
Harrington, DE – Anglers, hunters, shooters, campers, boaters, and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages: don’t miss the third annual Delmarva Outdoors Expo to be held April 26 – 28th at the Delaware State fairgrounds in Harrington, Delaware.
When you think of the Delmarva peninsula, you think of the outdoors – hunting, fishing, the state parks and beaches – the area has something for almost everyone. Darrell Meade, a local business owner and lover of all things outdoors, noticed the absence of such an event where one should be. Meade has organized an outdoors show in the area that the entire family enjoys, and he has hit a home run. “I wanted to do something on the scale of the Harrisburg show for this area, that was for everyone, not just guys in camouflage. We have always needed a show like this, primarily because Delmarva has such a wealth of outdoor activities that many haven’t experienced. This expo will bring those experiences to the entire family.”
Among the attractions taking place at the Delmarva Outdoors Expo are the always entertaining Dock Dogs in a three-day competition.
