The great outdoors will be brought indoors at the Silverdome this weekend as part of the annual Outdoor Boat and Caravan Show.
Now in its seventh year, 43 exhibitors will be spread throughout the velodrome for the three-day extravaganza.
From Friday 6 to Sunday 8, the event will showcase Tasmanian and Mainland businesses in the outdoor leisure and activities industry including motorhomes, caravans, 4WD's, boats and accessories.
Event coordinator Krista Nicholls said they were expecting around 8000 people through the doors.
"This is the largest caravan and boat show in Tasmania, and there is always a great mix of exhibitors with 13 new stallholders and 30 returning," Ms Nicholls said.
"One of the main drawcards for people is the knowledge on offer from our exhibitors, and it's a chance to get a good deal with many offering show specials."
The event offers much more than boats and caravans with delicious food, coffee, amazing savings, competitions, face painting and jumping castle for the kids; there is something for everyone.
The show has four main objectives: to raise funds for the Tamar Yacht Club's community and junior sailing initiatives and to be able to continue to support other clubs and not for profits with these funds.
