ALLEGHENY TOWNSHIP, BLAIR COUNTY - If you are tired of  the cold and snow, you might want to check out  the  R-V  expo that is underway at the Blair County Convention Center.
 WTAJ  Reporter Kevin Flanigan  stopped by the show today  and  has more on why the expo is drawing plenty of visitors..
Big crowds are expected  here   at the Blair County  Convention Center over  the next three days   not only to take a break from the    very cold winter temperatures,  but to plan ahead for the  the busy camping season to come.  
The lower level of the Convention  Center is filled with  all sorts of makes and models of new recreational vehicles. That alone is enough to draw  in  R-V enthusiasts
Tom Mahoney  says this  is the sort of show that can inspire future vacation plans.

"Just a day out   there to get away from it all.  We like to look,   see what is new   keep up to date there.  We have a travel trailer   we're always looking to maybe  update or something there." 

In addition to special displays  and speakers,   the show  features  the latest   in recreational vehicles  and  camping units  available   That helps this show draw lots of interest.
"Folks have been cooped up all winter long    and i think they are really edgy   about wanting to get out  camping.    And so this gives them the opportunity   to see what is new in the market place."  
With  plenty of people interested in getting out doors  and back to nature as soon as the weather  allows, organizers of the  expo say they  should have  plenty of  visitors  over the weekend to checking  out   the new  recreational units on display.
Some of those  of those  who come back year after year say they are surprised at how these units keep changing .
"It's interesting,  finding out  some new stuff,    just looking, see if i can come up with anything,   we have a travel trailer and   and maybe looking to get another one."    

There is a six dollar  admission  fee  for adults interested in attending this  Pennsylvania Adventure Expo,.  But  organizers say  it's money well spent with all this show has to offer.
