The All Valley RV Show that opens today at the Rio Grande Valley Livestock Showgrounds in Mercedes always draws thousands of visitors, giving them the opportunity to see all that’s new in the RV world. This year, show visitors have another good reason to attend the show – besides the hundreds of informative exhibitors and the free seminars. One lucky visitor will win a new Sportsman travel trailer or a $500 second prize.
The annual show sponsored by the Rio Grande Valley Chapter of the Texas Recreational Vehicle Association features the newest motor homes, fifth wheels, travel trailers, park models and manufactured homes.
In addition to the RVs and mobile homes, there are a number of local and out of area RV parks, visitor bureaus, RV equipment and supplier booths. And there will be numerous other booths that can provide many innovative ideas and accessories for the RV owner. Other booths selling items popular with RV owners will also participate in the show.
The show runs for three days, Jan. 10, 11 and 12, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and live music will be provided all three days. Free seminars will be offered, including Terry Cooper, the RV Doctor; Evada Cooper, Cooking RV Style; and Steve Anderson, Workamper News.
Admission is $5 per person, and each ticket provides one entry in the prize drawing. The drawing will be held on Saturday, Jan. 12. It is not necessary to be present to win.
The Livestock Showgrounds are located at 1000 N. Texas Avenue, Mercedes, just off Expressway 83. Follow the signs.
