'There are so many things to see and do across both Shows with hundreds-of-thousands of products on display, 230 exhibitors, celebrity guests, informative talks plus as well the ever popular Yamaha Supertank, Kids Marine Zone and the 4x4 Show's Action Arena.'
Paul Morgan, Event Manager of the National 4x4 & Outdoors Show is also pleased with today's attendance and is encouraging people planning their next outdoors adventure to head to the Showgrounds this weekend.
'Every year, the Tinnie and Tackle Show and the National 4x4 & Outdoors Show combine to create what is the ultimate destination for any outdoor enthusiast or those planning their next adventure,' he said.
'So if you're planning a trip, maybe over Easter, or want to get inspiration for one, make sure to head to the Showgrounds this weekend.'
