LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A car smash and a free paintball arena are just a few of the fun, manly events that will be offered at Saturday's 2nd Annual Man Expo of East Texas.
Vendors and crews spent much of the day today putting the finishing touches on this year's event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the George H. Henderson Jr. Expo Center in Lufkin.
The 2nd Annual Man Expo will have a new element - the Man Card.
"So … as they participate in the events, they'll win so many Man Cards, and they'll get their names in the drawings as many times as they participate, so there will be limits on the games, but we definitely want them to go around and hit all the activities," Starla Bickerstaff, KTRE's station manager, said.
There's a little old but a lot new when it comes to the activities you'll see Saturday. But perhaps one of the biggest changes is the improved paintball course.
"We're changing it up a little bit, cause we had a lot of close quarters kind of situations last time, so we're trying to spread the field out a little bit," Josh Gentry, a marketing producer for KTRE, said. "It's going to be a little bit bigger and hopefully better in every way."
When you get there, stop by the Game Center. This is where intense video gamers can compete in tournaments for prizes and check out other video game systems that will be available just in time for the holidays.
Don't pass up the car show, monster truck rides, washers and horseshoe competitions, or the blackjack table. These are just a few things no man … or woman will want to miss.
