Arkansas Boat Expo & The Good Life Expo will debut at Conway Event Center in Conway from Friday to Sunday.
The first ever two-expos-in-one is on track to feature the largest display of boats, watercraft, recreational vehicles, ATVs, tractors and outdoor lifestyle products and services ever displayed together in Arkansas.
"We plan to raise the bar for boat shows and expos in Arkansas," Jeff Turnbow, owner of TURNBOW CORP. and producer of the event, said.
Aside from having the best selection of boats and outdoor lifestyle products and services, look for a totally new expo experience. New innovative experiences such as a 200-foot-long zip line will be in the middle of it all. Food and vendors include funnel cakes, BBQ and Smoothie King.
During the Friday Night Preview Party, watch the reveal of the nation’s first pontoon/wake surf boat. Minnesota-based Montara Boats and Arkansas Marine is excited to announce an industry first — a pontoon boat you can surf behind.
After extensive research and development, Montara has developed a patent-pending design that blends the comfort of a pontoon boat with the performance of an inboard surf boat. This is an official debut in Arkansas and the Southeastern U.S. Local breakout artist Jonathan Alexander will perform an acoustic music performance from 5-8 p.m. H2O Sportz & Marine will provide hors d'oeuvres of Whole Hog BBQ and America’s Best Fried Pies to the first 500 inside the party.
The Arkansas Boat Expo and The Good Life Expo will be open Friday through Sunday.
Admission is free for kids 12 and under and $10 for adults. First responders, veterans and active-duty servicemen will receive free admission with ID. On Friday, and during the VIP Preview Party, adult admission is $12. The VIP Preview Party will feature live music, hors d'oeuvres and giveaways, including tickets to see Carrie Underwood and more.
