Metro Toronto Convention Centre welcomes Toronto Sportsmen’s Show

Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, Assignment Editor, Environment Editor, Sports Editor ON, O.F.A.H. MEDIA RELEASE--(Marketwire - March 4, 2010) - For the first time ever, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre is getting ready to host a rite of passage into the spring season - the 63rd annual Toronto Sportsmen's Show (TSS). Canada's largest combined outdoors, fishing and boating show runs from March 17 to 21, and in addition to the exciting new venue, is offering some great incentives to make a visit to the show even more appealing.

The show is easier to get to than ever, when you take advantage of TTC and Go Transit that offer direct access to the facility. The Metro Toronto Convention Centre is just a five-minute protected walk from Union Station. Leave the car and the hassle outside the city.

If you're driving to the show there are 1,700 on-site parking spots, and an additional 10,000 spaces near by in four designated Harbourfront parking areas, with free shuttle service daily. New this year is the "5 after 5" promotion. Arrive after 5pm and pay only $5 for show entry. Regular admission is $17.00 for adults, $11 for juniors and seniors, and free for children under six when accompanied by an adult. Family passes are also available.

Moving with the TSS is the popular Ontario OUT OF DOORS Hunting Hall, with 50,000 square feet of manufacturers and retailers devoted exclusively to the shooting sports. Be sure to check out the O.F.A.H. Hunting Seminar Stage line up of presentations designed to help you make the most of your time in the field. Making sense of synthetic scents, predator hunting, rattling and calling big bucks, wild turkey tips are among the topics that will be covered by some of hunting's most familiar names, including Angler and Hunter Television host Cam Brownson, Canada in the Rough's Thomas Pigeon, Moose Madness author Alex Gouthro, and other hunting experts.

The Ringwood Fish Culture Station, Orillia Perch Festival and Kid's Fishing Days are among the many organizations that have received support. For more information, visit www.sportshows.ca
