WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9: SPORTS & OUTDOOR SHOWS
Profile America — Wednesday, March 9th. Many people who love the outdoors are near the end of their patience with cold weather. In Milwaukee, up to 100,000 of them are getting charged up by attending the 71st Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel Sports Show. They will drool over travel and resort, fishing, hunting, and outdoor recreation exhibits, stoking their dreams of warmer weather and blue skies. For those who love gardening, there's the Indiana Flower and Patio Show, where more than 100,000 people will enjoy 30 fully landscaped gardens, as well as services for homes, yards, and patios.
