A goat keeps an eye on the steady crowd of people at the Interior Provincial Exhibition in Armstrong.

Busy first day for the Armstrong fair

Opening day of the fair saw 15,921 people pass through the gate



The Interior Provincial Exhibition got off to a great start.

A total of 15,921 people passed through the gate during opening day Wednesday.

“It was a pretty typical day,” said Bryan Burns, general manager, adding that attendance for opening day in 2012 was 16,320.

Rain in the morning didn’t keep people from having fun in Armstrong.

“It’s beautiful fair weather when it’s mild and not so hot,” said Burns.

Look for more in Friday’s Morning Star.
