It may have rained on Niverville’s parade but the remainder of the community’s Ole Tyme Country Fair which took place June 8 and 9 turned out to be perfect.
The Niverville Ole Tyme Fair spokesperson Jeff Stott says heavy rains presented a few challenges and cancelled the annual festival’s parade the weekend was an overall success.
Jeff Stott, spokesperson for the Niverville Ole Tyme Country Fair says that it was a challenge with the rain that hit the community Friday night and Saturday morning, but thankfully it cleared up for the remainder of the event.
“The grass was a little wet but once the wind died down and we have a little bit of sunshine before the end of the day things turned out well,” stated Stott. “We had an enormous crowd.”
One of the highlights of the weekend was the Wakeboard Rail Jam competition which made its first appearance in Canada ever at the fair. Another treat was a performance by the winners of Canada’s Got Talent Sagkeeng’s Finest.
The big concert on Saturday night was three-time 2011 Canadian Country Music Association Award winner Dean Brody which drew thousands of spectators dressed in red and white to show their Canadian spirit.
Bringing the lake to the streets of Niverville, a unique wakeboarding event took place in the community.
