Nearly 200 exhibitors will be showing outdoor gear and items of interest, and 2015 fishing, hunting and sports licenses and elk permits will have a one-stop place for pickup.

The show promotional material says it will offer a chance to try stand-up paddle boarding, canoeing and kayaking at Paddlefest.

Young people can learn to identify venomous snakes with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources’ help or try fishing at a catch-and-release trout pond.

Admission is $12 for adults, while children under 15 and active military with ID are free.
