The weather wasn't ideal for an outdoor event but that didn't keep people away from the annual Hooked on Fishing Not on Drugs Expo.
Saturday and Sunday, Elkins High School hosted this event for the 18th year. Organizers say it's become a spring tradition and gives local families a chance to get involved in outdoor activities and keep their kids away from drugs. Saturday, the high school was packed as people took part in hands on activities and listened to music.
"The whole communities involved. Most everybody's bringing their family so it's real family oriented and so forth," said Tom Oldham, committee member.
"Everybody involved in it really puts their heart and soul into making this a real good event for the children," said Danny Chenoweth, Izaak Walton League.
If you missed out on Saturday, you're in luck! The event continues Sunday from noon until five at Elkins High School.
