Farm Show at Western Fair

London | by Dianne Colgan  

Today is the last day for the Farm Show at the Western Fair in London.

It's your last chance to get to London for this years Farm Show at the Western Fair.

Corporate Affairs Manager Heather Blackwell says Friday is the last day of the annual farm show.

Blackwell says this year is their biggest show yet, with 250-thousand square feet to see hundreds of exhibitors with a variety of agriculture-related products.

She says they also have a lot of speakers and panel discussions, with talks today on grain prices and corn technology.

Blackwell says the 'Ride and Drive' area is proving to be popular this year as it gives people the chance to test drive Bobcat equipment and various pick-up trucks.

Blackwell tells us they average about 20-thousand visitors each year for the Farm Show, but they're hoping for more this year.

She says it's one of the biggest farm shows in Southwestern Ontario and it's worth the drive for out of towners.
