Looking for some fun this Weekend? How about attending the AZGF Expo. This event is located at Ben Avery Shooting Facility, 4044 W. Black Canyon Blvd., Phoenix
Learn to fish, paddle a kayak, pitch a tent, shoot a bow or fire a gun this weekend at the Arizona Game & Fish Department Outdoor Expo. Or just watch others do the same.
And talk about hitting the bull's-eye, it's all free.
Dana Matthews-McNeil is looking forward to attending the expo for the third time.
"I like the cowboy mounted shooters," she said. "Just because it is fascinating that you can ride a horse and shoot a gun while riding the horse and hit the target."
The Peoria mother will be among the 50,000 people expected to attend the two-day event at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in northwest Phoenix.
"Your first impression might be, 'Wow this is huge,''' said Nick Walter, Arizona Game & Fish Department spokesman. "It's a huge facility, so there is such an enormous variety of things to do, between hiking, learning about camping tips, talking to wildlife experts, shooting sports, cowboy action. It's just on and on."
The 150 or so exhibitors include recreation and conservation groups, government agencies and vendors of outdoor products and services. A new feature this year is the chance for visitors to test drive brand-new off-road vehicles.
Returning to the expo is a 90,000-gallon man-made pond called Lake Paddlemore. People can climb into kayaks and paddle around the 3-foot-deep pond.
Matthews-McNeil said her family enjoys the outdoors. The family hunts, fishes, goes off-roading and camps. One member participates in shooting sports.
"The outdoor expo is like going to the state fair for my family," she said. "We see new things that we may use for the outdoors and my kids like to try everything the vendors offer for free. They paddled the lake and enjoyed it last year."

I am writing to express my pleasure with real estate agent Colleen Kukulski, who represented me in a recent purchase of a single-family home.
Ms. Kukulski guided me through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching for houses to making the offer and closing the deal. I must give credit to Ms. Kukulski with a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience.
This is my third purchase of a property, and I never had such a pleasurable experience. Ms. Kukulski is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. I never could have gotten my current home without her.
To reiterate, I am nothing but pleased with Ms. Kukulski's and her experience and her expertise and I would recommend her to everyone.
