RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - The 2019 Annual Black Hills Sports Show and Outdoor Expo kicked off Friday, at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center in Rapid City.
This three-day event showcases more than 100 dealers and vendors including every major ATV, boat and RV dealer in the region. There are tons of events that feature special guest speakers, vehicle showcases, auctions and a ladies' lane that has unique home products and clothing. There is also a variety of free activities for kids like archery shooting, a 24' climbing wall, a BB gun shooting range a Strider Bike obstacle course and more. Now in it's 37th year, this event has grown so much over the years it encompasses the entire Civic Center.
"We do have lots of new vendors that we're excited about. Unfortunately because of the size of the Civic Center, we're not allowed to bring in a lot more vendors," Ami Scull-Larson, Black Hills Sports Show coordinator. "We're really anxious for the new arena to arrive because we have lots more boat and RV dealers that'll like to come in. So we have our tried-and-true people that are back again this year but I do have a lot of new vendors showing some of the newest stuff."
