At least 25,000 people came out to the event this weekend. That's up from the 15,000 people who came to the inaugural year back in 1987.

This year, more than 300 booths packed the convention center, including more than 175 vendors, bringing in more than 8 million dollars to the state every year.

Buckmasters' CEO says they have more than 200,000 subscribers.
