Winter adventure show planned
With a Termination Dust just a month off, fun winter times are nearly at hand. Wonderland plans and purchases can start with a visit to the fourth annual Oxygen and Octane Expo at the Dena’ina Convention Center in Anchorage on Friday, Oct. 7 through Sunday, Oct. 9.
Admission is free, ample parking is nearby and there’s a load of door prizes to be given away at the Expo. Coupled with the timing of Permanent Fund Dividend checks to be issued just one day before the show, promises an exciting weekend.
The Oxygen & Octane Expo is Southcentral’s only winter adventure show. A record turnout of vendors and visitors is expected this year.
Alaska’s premier expo facility will be filled to the limits with vendors, outdoor guides, rental and vacation properties, machines, skis and gear, and fun for the entire family.
The Oxygen & Octane Expo is endorsed by the Alaska State Snowmobile Association and sponsored in part by the National Guard, and is a free event that brings locals together with the providers and equipment they need, and information they need to know. The ASSA will also host a snowmachine and gear swap during the expo.
In addition to snowmachine dealers from the Big 4, trucks and autos, trailers, ski apparel and equipment, and clearance items, the Big O has some new sights, fun and foods in store.
In addition to the Alaska SnowRider Stage and its accompanying acts, a beer garden will help create a more relaxed show. Those who attend can have some tasty snacks and perhaps a beverage or two, slow their pace down, and get to know the vendors. The Big O is an opportunity to create a relationship with dealers or the fellow who will work on the sled or skis this winter.
Other additions that have been worked into the lineup will be unveiled on show day.
The Oxygen & Octane Expo will have door prizes and raffles that include ski passes to Alyeska Resort, Hilltop and Arctic Valley, snowcat skiing with Chugach Powder Guides, chances to enter to win a snowmachine, riding gear and overnight stays at fine lodges and much, much more.
