-A A +A

The Sunrise Kiwanis Club of Las Vegas is launching an Outdoor Recreation Show this summer to showcase northern New Mexico, and it’s hoping to make it an annual event.

The organization is currently recruiting exhibitors for the June 18 show, which will be held at the Abe Montoya Recreation Center.

It hopes to make the Outdoor Recreation Show a family-oriented even where non-profit organizations, schools, businesses and other exhibitors can educate the public about outdoor opportunities, products and services available to enhance the outdoor experience. The event will include food, music, and games for kids.

“Las Vegas and San Miguel County are blessed with gorgeous mountains inhabited by abundant wildlife, vast rolling prairies, clear streams and lakes full of fish and four distinct seasons,” Sunrise Kiwanis President Jeffrey Mills said in a letter describing the event.

“There is no better place in New Mexico for families to actively enjoy these natural surroundings year round by participating in camping, hunting, fishing, boating, bicycling, hiking, skiing, golfing and horseback riding.”

Among the organizations expected to set up educational displays at the show are the state Game and Fish Department, the National Wildlife Refuge, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the National Wild Turkey Federation, Search & Rescue of San Miguel County and wildland firefighting organizations.

Products expected to be featured at the show include recreational vehicles, all terrain vehicles, boats, jet skis and bicycles.
