Bass Pro Shops Opens Tonight - 11/14

11/14/2007 02:56:00 PM
The first ever New England Bass Pro Shops (Outdoor World) opens tonight in Foxborough! I can barely contain my excitement. There are very few retail shops out there that instill me with excitement whenever I go. Ikea is one of them and Bass Pro Shops is the other. I feel like a kid in a candy store.

While you'll find a huge selection of outdoor gear, Bass Pro Shops stores are also part museum, art gallery, antique store, aquarium, education, conservation and entertainment center. The Grand Opening is set for Thursday, November 15th but a special "Evening for Conservation" to help benefit area conservation groups will be held on Wednesday night, November 14th beginning at 6 PM. This exciting, celebrity-packed event is free and open to the public.

Curious about the description? Bass Pro Shops are like Swiss Army Knives. They've got everything. Hehe. You'll just have to see it for yourself. What am I most excited for?

A cave structure surrounds the aquarium, which will be stocked with more than 400 fish native to the area including largemouth bass, striped bass, northern pike, bowfin, giant carp, Atlantic salmon and crappie. Two elevators rise up from either side of the aquarium offering riders a bird's-eye view of the 3-story waterfall. Other water features include a 5,500- gallon-turtle pond and a 3,800 gallon trout pool.

Work has been quite busy lately so I doubt I'll be able to go to the grand opening, but I will definitely be there this weekend. If anybody has a chance to go tonight or tomorrow and will take pictures, I'd love to post them.
