The Tremont World's Fair is one of the best little agricultural exhibitions in the province, and this year was no different during the 77th edition of the event. Ox pulls, of course, are one of the most popular events.
Hundreds turn out for Western Kings' tribute to farming
The 77th annual World's Fair was back in Tremont August 30, offering a fun-filled day for the whole family. And hundreds turned out for the always-popular event.
Also known as the Western Kings Community Fair, it's a one-day annual celebration and promotion of agriculture that shines a light on local farming communities. It got its start in 1929 in Greenwood as a Boys and Girls Club event. Expansion of the Greenwood air base years later prompted a venue change to Tremont.
Nearly 80 years later, the fair continues to draw crowds for the popular horse and oxen pulls, arts and crafts competitions, cattle judging, and food, flower,and vegetable displays, held in the agricultural building. See Murray Rolph slideshow here.
