Some say it will be the largest convention in state history.

The National Rifle Association is coming to Indiana in April, and officials believe it could draw crowds of up to 77,000 people and have an economic impact of $55 million.

The city began working with the NRA several years ago to bring the convention to the state, which will feature more than 600 exhibitors, seminars and celebrity appearances.

The convention will put the city into the national spotlight, and officials in Indianapolis say they are also prepared to handle the likely draw of protestors.

The NRA Convention is set for Apr. 25-27.
