RENO, NV (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- About 10,000 people are expected to pour into the Reno-Sparks Convention Center for the three day Wild Sheep Foundation Convention and Sporting Expo. Better known as the Sheep Show, the event has called the Biggest Little City home for 27 years and is expected to pump about $10 million into the local economy.
More than 400 exhibits from around the world are a part of the show this year. The types of exhibits range from furs, taxidermy, art, jewelery, fire arms, seminars, etc.
"We call it the Sheep Show, but there really is something for everyone. Whether you want to book a hunting or fishing trip or a photo safari, it's here. If you're looking for fine fire arms it's here. If you're looking for incredible wild life art, it's here," Wild Sheep Foundation President and CEO Gray Thornton says.
Thornton says last year's event was record breaking as far as attendance and money raised. Thornton says in Reno last year the foundation was able to raise $3.9 million for wild sheep conservation and wild life resources.
The Sheep Show starts Thursday and will go through Saturday at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center and the Peppermill Resort & Casino.
The cost $15 to go attend the Sheep Show. If you go to Scolari's Food and Drug Company, Sheels, Cabela's, or Sportsman's Warehouse you can get a $5 off coupon.
