Total bust. Only about three or four things we're actually fishing or hunting or outdoor related. If you like going to Food Truck festivals you probably would have enjoyed going there. They did not have an ATM set up so a lot of the vendors we're not able to make cells.

You saw 3 or 4 things? Well at least the wife scored some jelly.

There were some Mitzi skiff boats. Tailin toads buff and gloves and a tackle shop. The other stuff was all crafts and stuff. Evidently a lot of vendors left mid afternoon. From what they said their show in volusia had 50k people come in. One of my friends had a booth and he packed up at 4. He said the organizer had a bunch of people in the office and she was crying because so many people were mad at her.

We went yesterday also. Good thing we brought our kayaks and fished Deep creek right down the street. It seemed like they didn't advertise the show very well

We drove by Sunday mid morning on the way to the national forest and it was a bust, in my opinion it was a bad location would have done much better closer to downtown st aug or in Jax.

It's most likely like the one they've had in Jax's last year . I think it was a 20 dollars fee to get in , then totally disappointed . Very few things were there that were outdoor related at far as fishing and hunting . I'm never going to go again unless someone went and said it was worth going to before hand .
