Join WLBZ 2 at the Eastern Maine Sportsmen's Show

WLBZ 2 will be at the 75th annual Eastern Maine Sportsmen's Show March 8 through 10 at the University of Maine Field House in Orono.  We'll once again be there with our Big Ol' Fish booth inviting folks to stop by and have their picture taken with our Big Ol' Fish. 

Every person who has their photo taken will receive, while supplies last, a measuring tape to size up your own Big Ol' Fish-- courtesy of Branch Pond Marine and WLBZ 2.

All the pictures will be posted right here on the Around Town section of our website. 

Every year over 150 vendors, ranging from sporting goods dealers to hunting and fishing guides, gather at this event.  It's a great place to see the latest hunting, fishing and outdoor products.  Show hours are Friday 5 to 9pm, Saturday 9am to 8pm and Sunday 9am to 3pm.
