Men and women are gearing up for a fun weekend in Beaumont when two great shows combine to give both genders — and complete families, in fact — a lot of bang for the buck July 20-22 at Ford Park Event Center.
The Peddler Show, a huge hit with ladies in our area for years, has teamed up with the Southeast Texas Great Outdoors Expo to delight both sexes with the latest in chic décor for the home, camping equipment, crafts, jewelry, ATVs, boats, hunting and fishing equipment, the newest innovations, and fun activities for all ages, not to mention special guests, displays, vendors, and experts in various fields.
As usual, The Peddler Show offers shoppers an experience that cannot be duplicated. Whether your style is trendy or traditional, classic or contemporary, you’re sure to find that perfect gift or accent piece for your home.
The Annual Southeast Texas Great Outdoors Expo has long been recognized in our area as one of the premier events of its kind and this year will cover more than 50,000 square feet with great attractions and exhibits featuring the best in hunting, fishing, cooking, and outdoor sports for the entire family.
Special events include Robert Ackerman and his deadly Texas Rattlesnake Pit, recently featured on the hit television show “America’s Got Talent” and on Animal Planet. Guests will witness his death-defying “Cobra Kiss” and many more heart-stopping exhibitions. Show times are Friday 4-6 p.m., Saturday from 10 am to 2 p.m. and 5-7 p.m., and again on Sunday at noon, 2 and 3 p.m.
Activities designed for the younger guests include testing their abilities with paint ball and laser target shooting and walking on water with Bubble Runners. Amazing giveaways and prizes will be given away throughout the show, as well as door prizes from She Safari, Texas Motor Speedway and more.
All of this takes place as part of the Fifth Annual His and Hers Weekend combining The Peddler Show with the Southeast Texas Great Outdoors Expo. The two of you can shop together and like it! And no need for sitters. Bring the kids along.
Find all of your outdoor needs at rock bottom prices, get new ideas, allow the kids to enjoy fun activities planned with them in mind, and this year, plan to meet the “Swamp People” from the hit television show on the History Channel. Popular Liz, Troy, and Jacob will be on hand to sign autographs, pose for photographs, and meet the guests.
