Hundreds filled Middle Concho Park for the second day of the Wake the Desert Competition.

Nearly 150 competitors from across the country traveled to San Angelo for this weekend's event in hopes to take home the grand prize of $25,000.

This is the largest and longest running wakeboard tournament in the state, and the 14th year the event has returned to San Angelo.

The event coordinator says this is the largest turnout they've seen.

The event continues, Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Middle Concho Park.
