ESCANABA — The Upper Peninsula State Fairgrounds in Escanaba has welcomed back the U.P. Trappers Convention and Outdoor Expo for its 60th annual event. The convention, which annually attracts over 3,000 people from across the Midwest, kicked-off Friday morning at 8 a.m. With nearly 40 vendors, live demonstrations from trapping experts, and activities for those of all ages, attendees had plenty to do at the two-day event.

“People are now planning their vacation around our show so they can come to the U.P. because they are outdoor people,” Roy Dahlgren, the convention coordinator, said. “People get to be like family and friends … it is like a family reunion.”
