So you made it out to the News Channel 8 Outdoors Expo and Boat Show and that means you are ready to have some fun with us. Trust me, we’ve been waiting to see you all and interact again.

First off, to help you find the exhibits and make your way around this big beautiful Raymond James Stadium, we created an Outdoors Expo Map. You can find boats of all shapes and sizes, boating accessories, fishing gear, apparel, outdoor supplies, and so much more.

If there is a specific vendor you are looking for you can look at the Vendor List and Check out high-end luxury vessels, hunting and sportfishing boats, pontoon, family, and speed boats, showcased by over 20 manufacturers and dealers.


I hope you stopped at the News Channel 8 booth to meet some of our anchors and reporters you see on TV and online every day. They can give you tips on making it through our new WFLA.com scavengers hunt. We set it up for you to enjoy a few fun activities, and once completed you could win a prize!

Keep track of your progress with your phone photos and then return to the booth to show a team member and answer the trivia question correctly. (They can give you hints)


Remember, this is a day to enjoy for the kids, too. Want to play a game? We have two for you to try and become the high scorer. These are fun to play while you are taking a break or standing in line. And, yes, we did create them for the theme of the day. 🐟🐟🐟🏴‍☠️🏴‍☠️🏴‍☠️
