Outdoor lovers came out to the Old National Events Plaza this weekend for the first Outdoor Expo.

Sponsored by Townsquare Media, the event featured everything from hunting and fishing, to fetch and fish - this is where they teach your dog how to catch fish.

Eric Cornish says it's been a great turnout - Saturday, more than 1,500 people came to the expo.

"I think people here in the Tristate are really into outdoors, whether they like hunting or fishing or camping or just like being outside. I mean, that's, kind of what this event is all about," said Eric.

It was also a star studded event. Stars from TV's 'Swamp People' and 'Sons of Guns' were there to meet fans and sign autographs.
