Greensboro, NC -- The Central Carolina Boat and Fishing Expo took over the Greensboro Coliseum this weekend.
Motor boats, pontoons, fishing boats, deck boats and more were all on display. Hundreds of people toured boats and participated in interactive displays.
But even if you're not a boating enthusiast. this event is still important because, when these kinds of expos are a success, it's a good sign for the economy.
"Boat selling, right now, money's freeing up in the banks, and the economy is a little better than people think," said Kipp Thompson, sales manager at Chatlee Boat & Marine. "And, so hopefully, you know, the money is flowing a little better than what it had this time last year."
