Poultryfest brought in record crowds Saturday at the West Niagara Agriculture Centre.
“We were thrilled with the record turnout for PoultryFest Niagara 2017,” said event president Jim Koornneef.
“We fortunately were blessed with the one great day in an otherwise terrible week of weather. When we did have a five-minute downpour in the afternoon, the three large buildings at the new Agricultural Centre provided plenty of space to take cover.”
Koornneef said the success of the event is the result of a top-to-bottom team effort.
“PoultryFest is a great example of what can be achieved when volunteers, businesses, and the municipality work together for the common benefit of the community,” he said.
“This year we saw more visitors from outside West Niagara than we have ever experienced before. The Kira Isabella evening concert attracted a huge crowd of passionate fans and the Canada 150 fireworks that followed were outstanding.”
“None of this would be possible without the great committee of volunteers we have.”
