Final day of SEWE attracts thousands

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Sunday, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition closed up after three days in Charleston.

Known at SEWE, the exposition attracts an estimated 40,000 people each year.

Sunday's activities included dock dogs in Brittlebank Park, where dogs try to jump off a dock as far as they can.

In Marion Square, different groups put on exhibits for birds of prey and snakes as well as cooking classes and booths with food samples.

"We've been coming down for several years," Alan Wooten, who owns the dog training company Palmetto Gun Dogs said. "My kids love it more than anything. They look forward to it more than Christmas morning. They really do."

"I love the dock dogs," Meredith Mutispaugh said. "This is probably my favorite exhibit. We come out here on Sunday and spend most of the day here."

Organizers estimate the event brings in $50 million for the city and is the largest event of its kind in the United States.
