The Louisiana Outdoor Expo has become one of the premiere summer events in the state, and it will once again kick off at the Cajundome and Cajundome Convention Center Friday, July 25 through Sunday, July 27.

Frank Malambri, sales manager for Townsquare Media Lafayette and one of the organizers for the expo, said he hopes to have record attendance for this year's event.

"It really caters to anything outdoors but with an emphasis on hunting, fishing, boating, eating. All the things that we can do outdoors here in Louisiana you can find at the Louisiana Outdoor Expo."

Special events for this year's expo include WOW Whitetails, an exhibit of the largest whitetails ever taken in the United States. Twiggy the water-skiing squirrel will also make an appearance this year.

More than 200 different vendors will be onsite, Malambri said. "There's something for everybody," he said.
