Crowds explore hunting, fishing gear at Carolina Outdoor Expo

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The Greenville Convention Center transformed into an outdoorsman's paradise this weekend for the annual Carolina Outdoor Expo.

Outdoor sporting vendors of all kinds set up booths for hunters, fishermen, boaters and campers to explore.

This year, the expo added more family friendly exhibits including a duck blind game to let folks test their shooting skills, Coordinator Joe Albea said.

The turnout for the two-day expo has already exceeded expectations, organizers said.

"It's just been the way we've marketed it and just the fact that we've been here three years now and people that have come to the first two seasons liked what they saw and we're building on that now," Albea said.

The expo wraps up Sunday. Tickets are $10 per person and kids under 10 get in for free.
