34TH AGRI-SHOW IN THE BOOKS
Organizers are already working on the 2020 version of the Foster’s Peace Country Classic Agri-Show.
President Calvin Kirkham says this year's edition (the 34th) was very well attended.
"Thursday was good, Friday was excellent, and (the) same with Saturday. There was lots of interest in the horse program and the cattle program. I think we're very satisfied with it."
He thinks there are a couple of main reasons for the strong attendance.
"I think the weather had a lot to do with it. It wasn't too bad. Then, school was out (for the Mighty Peace Teacher's Convention). That helps, too."
Kirkham says new events at this year's Agri-Show got great reviews. Skijoring on Friday night was among the new features this year.
"They said it was excellent. They had lots of participants. There was a whole bunch from the Grande Prairie Ski Club come up and they really enjoyed it they said."
Kirkham says feedback from the exhibitors was all positive as well.
He adds some new things are being worked on for the 35th edition next year, but is not saying yet what those might be.
The 2019 edition of the Agri-Show ran Thursday through Saturday last week at Evergreen Park.
