ST. CLOUD - Those who enjoy hunting, fishing and any other outdoor activity are bound to find something they'll enjoy during the 26th annual St. Cloud Sportsmen's Show this weekend.

The show will take place through Sunday February 9th at the Rivers Edge Convention Center in downtown St. Cloud.

Over 100 exhibits are on display at the convention. Everything from fishing boats to food are at the show, there are even three live whitetail deer on display through the weekend.

One popular destination at the event is the live trout pond. Michael Cummins works for the trout pond during the event, he says you can take the fish you catch home to cook and eat.

"We take them off the hook for you, we put them in a bag, and then you can take them home tonight," Cummins says.

Free seminars at the show will include appearances from pro-fishermen Ted Takasaki and hunter Todd Amenrud.

Since this is the 26th year for the show, Cummins adds that it's become tradition for many people who attend.

"It's a lot of fun because we see kids that are two-years-old, and we also get kids that are 82-years-old," Cummins said with a smile.

Here's the complete weekend schedule for the show:

Friday, February 7th: 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Saturday, February 8th: 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Sunday, February 9th: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
