135 booths were set up for this widely recognized annual event.

“We generally like a larger crowd on both days,” said Alvey, “But you have to take into account that there was a Barbecue Festival in Owensboro on Saturday and Sunday was Mothers’ Day.”

Alvey did state that there were several visitors on Sunday that actually did bring their mothers to the event.

Among the many booths that lined the Ballard Convention Center walls were such intriguing individuals as Owensboro native, Les Bryant. Bryant had an interesting mix of accessories, including items that had actually been brought back from Iraq.

Another interesting booth of wares was held by Don Bugby, also an Owensboro native. Bugby stated that, though he did sell a lot of items through his hobby, his main goal was to find antique items to buy and trade for. The interesting angle of Bugby’s booth was that he mostly sought antique Japanese weapons, such as swords and firearms.

Many other interesting individuals hosted booths at the event, such as Owensboro Deputy Sheriff Larry Payne. The National Rifleman’s Association also had a spokesperson at the show handing out paperwork and passing on information to attendees.

The staff of Midwest Promotions, LLC requested that iSurf pass on their thanks for those who have really helped out in this event. A special thanks goes out to Mayor Will Cox, Allen Seibert, Dana Brown, Tom Gulley, Eddie Payton, city workers and board members, and the residents of Hopkins County in general.
