More than 1,500 people of all ages got a chance to check out some wild outdoor sports in Waynesboro Saturday.

The city's parks and recreation department hosted the sixth annual Xtremefest of the Blue Ridge at Constitution Park. The event featured a rock climbing wall, an air bungee trampoline, kayak demonstrations and a BMX stunt show.

Organizers say the event is a great way for people to get active and try something new - at no cost.

"The event started six, seven years ago and it was the idea of introducing folks to some of these outdoor activities," said Dwayne Johnson of the Waynesboro Parks and Recreation Department. "We live in a beautiful area, two miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, so why not get out and enjoy that and we want to expose people to that, so they can do it in a safe, controlled environment before they go out on their own."

Different organizations like the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club and Rocktown Rollers also set up to give visitors more information about all those outdoor activities.
