Outdoorama at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi
This 40th annual event brings booths filled with the newest nature products, free wildlife seminars and adventure-filled attractions to Novi, Feb. 21-24, 2013
Are you interested in introducing your little one to the adventure that the great outdoors has to offer, but prefer to stay warm and toasty during the winter months? The 40th annual Outdoorama at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi event brings most of nature's wonders to Oakland County, Feb. 21-24, 2013.
This year's event will feature 150-plus booths of the newest outdoor products, 13 scheduled attractions, dozens of free fishing and hunting seminars and special appearances by Michigan Out of Doors TV hosts.
From fishing in one of the state's best trout ponds to viewing native Michigan wildlife presented by the Howell Nature Center, Outdoorama provides families with a plethora of opportunities to actively participate in wildlife education and exploration.
Children even have the opportunity to watch man's best friend fly – well, at least jump extremely high – during the Ultimate Air Dog competition, which will be hosted by former Detroit Tigers pitcher, Milt Wilcox.
This year's newest attraction, the WOW Whitetail Display, will feature 15 of the most famous whitetails of all time – including the "X-Factor" buck, the first deer to score over 500 inches.
Outdoorama runs 2 p.m.-9:30 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Admissions for this event is as follows: $10/ adults, $4/ children ages 6-14 and free for children under 5.
Because Outdoorama occurs in conjunction with the 6th annual Cottage and Lakefront Living Show, attendees will be able to visit two major events for the price of one!
