The Broward County Airboat and Buggy show is always a great way for you and your family to spend a weekend around a bunch of mud rigs and some close friends. It’s a rare occasion to see everyone together for a full weekend of fun without the need to clean your rig when you get home. Also, the chance to check out some of the most unique swamp buggies and airboats in the same location was good enough reason to make the trip so we took off down Florida’s Turnpike to the county of Davie, FL. This area had originally consisted of nothing but swamplands until 1909 when a developer named Robert Parsell Davie came into town. After buying a bunch of land in the everglades area, Davie helped the governor drain some swamps and build a school in the area for the local residence. Finally in 1916 the town was renamed to Davie to show their gratitude to his efforts. This made the perfect environment for any outdoor enthusiast, especially when you have high horsepower toys!
This event marks the 25th year in a row of putting on one of the best family related off-road events for the Broward County Airboat, Halftrack and Conservation Club. The Bergeron Rodeo Grounds hosted the event as well as the incredible John Anderson concert Saturday night. We saw every kind of rig imaginable including airboats, swamp buggies, Jeep’s, full-tracks, and of coarse mud trucks. The kids had plenty of things to keep them entertained like bounce houses, r/c car races, face painting, the super slide, and a reptile farm. We had a great weekend in Davie Florida, but enough about us, check out these pictures and get you rig ready for next years show!
