The event covers more than 30 acres across the main hall and adjacent areas. The theme of this year’s show is “Explore America” and will feature exhibits and displays that celebrate the 408 national parks across America. 2016 marks 100 years since the first national park was founded, and the National Park Service also has a year-long celebration planned.
