Elkins High School hosted an expo Saturday that encouraged kids to enjoy the outdoors and live drug-free.
 
The Randolph County "Hooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs" expo attracted thousands of people today who came out to enjoy the festivities.
 
There were drawings, live entertainment, and an outdoor fishing tank for kids to enjoy. All activities were focused on the message of healthy lifestyle choice including staying away from drugs and alcohol.
 
Although the focus was on fishing, HOFNOD officials say any outdoor activity will do.
 
"We do live in a rural state so there's a whole lot of things to do. We're kind of spear-heading the fishing message but at the same time we want to encourage them to go to hunting or hiking or any type of outdoor naturalist type thing. There's just a whole gamut of things kids can do other than video games and that sort of thing too," said Tom Oldhan.

The HOFNOD exhibit will also be open Sunday from noon until 5 p.m.
