Great turnout for this years Sportsmen Show

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The 23rd Annual Central Washington Sportsmen Show wrapped up at the Yakima SunDome Sunday.

Organizers say it was the best show they've had in the past five years and they had the largest turnout. 

They say more than 6,000 people went to the event over the weekend. They credit the vendors and a live bear show for bringing in the large crowds.

"We want to see the people come in and find good deals on whatever they might be looking for and spend some money. That's why the vendors are here, is to get in front of the public," said the shows spokesman, Rob Phillips.

Vendors say the show was also successful for them, many say they saw big sales and hope for similar results next year.
