The 2017 Townsquare Media Home Vacation and RV Show is now one for the history books, but it’s not too early to start thinking about next year. The 2018 show at Graham Arena will be the 55th held since the Gentling family began what’s become a Rochester rite of Spring (or soon to be Spring) in 1963 with the first KROC Home Show.
2017 was another exciting year for the Home, Vacation and RV Show with the addition of a car showroom in the west arena, where a bright yellow Chevy Camaro proved to be a popular attraction. Of course, the campers and RV’s that filled the east arena created a lot of excitement as the thousands of people who visited the show checked out the newest features of the rolling vacation homes. There were also quite a few boats on display, with a large selection of pontoon boats ready to be dropped into the water this summer.
Visitors also took in dozens of booths manned by home improvement companies, vacation spots and a variety of businesses offering products and services from cooking and sewing equipment to paintball equipment and Girl Scout cookies.
