 Bird Dog Parade, beginning Friday at noon, with about 50 sporting breeds of dogs and their owners marching through the Convention Center to start the show.

Vince Hancock, the reigning Olympic men's skeet shampion and first skeet shooter to repeat as Olympic gold medal winner, will help young shooters improve their shotgun skills.
