Hundreds converge on village for much-anticipated event

Hundreds of people lined Lawrencetown's Main Street Monday evening as one of the Valley's longest and largest parades made its way from Fitch Road, through the community, and into the Annapolis Valley Exhibition grounds.

Marching bands, horses, floats, walkers, marchers, and bicyclists made the trek, ending up at the Main Ring where judges announced their decisions and the 88th annual Annapolis Valley Exhibition was officially opened.
