DULUTH, Minn. – A rainforest is an exotic place filled with birds, snakes, insects, and animals you might not think of living in this type of climate.

The Duluth Boat, Sports, Travel & RV Show kicks off Wednesday, February 12 at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center, giving the public a chance to experience the rainforest.

The show runs through Sunday, February 16.

The Rainforest Exhibit is one of the show’s entertainment acts this year. The owner of the company is a Minnesota native currently living in the Brainerd area.
