HARRISBURG, DAULPHIN COUNTY - Dauphin County Commissioners are taking steps to ensure an outdoor and sports show returns to Harrisburg next year.
The commissioners approved a $58,000 tourism grant to book the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in 2014 for the ten days associated with the show.
This years show was cancelled after Reed Exhibitions, the British company in charge of the show, announced a ban on assault rifles and extended magazine clips sparking a mass boycott.
The cancellation is estimated to have cost the region $80 million.
It is unclear if Reed Exhibitions will return to run the Eastern Outdoor and Sports Show, but Dauphin County commissioners say if they do not, other groups could be brought in.
