If you’re anywhere near the Harrisburg area in Pennsylvania, chances are you might not be reading this. Chances are, you’re probably already at the 2011 Eastern Sports & Outdoor Show at the State Farm Show Complex, which is going on now through February 13.

There are a lot of big changes that the folks running the show have implemented for this year. Over 300 companies are setting up their displays for the first time, including Benchmade Knives, Savage Arms, Benelli, Kodabow and Innerloc Broadheads. Plus, they’re including a lot of family-friendly activities and pricing options for admissions and meals.

Another new feature is the Fishing Experience, which is located on the north end of the festival. You’ll get to mingle with the likes of fishing legends Hank Parker and Babe Winkelmen. And you can even enter your fishing-savvy kids into the CastingKids competition if you go on Sunday. (This is similar to what you’d see from the NFL’s Punt, Pass and Kick events.)  Each fishing youngster will get to try their best at casting, pitching, and flipping casting lures with a fishing rod and reel. The winner on Sunday will go on to compete on a statewide level at the Harrisburg Bass Pro Shops location at the end of July.

The Eastern Sports & Outdoor Show is open weekdays and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Admission is $13 for adults, $11 for seniors ages 62 and up, and $6 for children.
