PEORIA (HOI) - Saturday, crowds gathered to enjoy a unique showing of guns, knives, ammunition and more.
The 2021 Peoria Gun and Knife Show had more than 150 tables, with vendors attending from all around the state.
Attendees were able to buy, sell and trade a variety of different weapons. Those collectables include hand guns, rifle scopes, gun cartridges, ammunition, and even samurai swords.
Organizers said they had steady traffic all day full of gun enthusiasts.
"It's really packed," said attendee James Lovelace. "It's nice to see this many people out here. Good camaraderie amongst the people, no problems and everything looks good. The only thing it's kind of packed, but you know it is what it is."
For those who missed todays event, the showing will continue tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Exposition Gardens.
