Thousands of people from across southern Manitoba drove to Niverville over the weekend June 10 and 11 for the annual Niverville Old Tyme Country Fair.
The weather was perfect when gates opened on Friday with a show and shine, midway, street market, live music and blackout fireworks.
A full-day of activities followed on Saturday, capped off with country band Emerson Drive and a pyrotechnics display. The Juno Award-nominated band from Grand Prairie, Alberta played for a little more than 90 minutes to a packed Main Street, as revellers set up lawn chairs and filled the bleachers.
Organizers moved the intimate stage to the other side of the street this year to accommodate a larger crowd, which seems to be growing annually.
Thousands of music lovers packed the streets when Emerson Drive took to the stage in Niverville.
