Armstrong fair another huge success

A total of 150,170 people passed through the gate during the five days of the event

The Interior Provincial Exhibition ended on a high note.

Once the gates closed Sunday, 150,170 people had attended the 113th event over five days.

“It’s our third best year,” said Bryan Burns, general manager.

“Sunday was a really big day — 40,000 people.”

Planning is already underway for the 114th annual IPE in 2013.
