24th annual Wildlife Extravaganza kicks off

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - If you want to practice your turkey calling skills or try your hand at archery, the Mississippi Trade Mart is the place to be this weekend.

That's where the 24th annual Wildlife Extravaganza is set to kick off Friday afternoon. About 30,000 people are expected to attend the three-day event.

There will be grabbling and turkey calling demonstrations, as well as high-flying retrievers.

There will also be about 200 vendors, all hoping to help you get ready for hunting season.

"It's something where people get ready for the new season, kind of get people out of the hot summer time, start looking toward the fall," said Tim Barber, marketing director for the event.

The event runs from 3 PM-9 PM Friday, 9 AM-7 PM Saturday, and 10 AM-5 PM Sunday.

Admission is $8 for adults and $4 for children.

Kids get in free Friday, because it's kids day.
