During our travels to Nova Scotia last week, we attended the 86th Annapolis Valley Exhibition (13 to 18 August) in Lawrencetown. It was our first time experiencing a "truly" local country fair and it was interesting. It sure was a different kind of life style than we are use to - horses, cows, ox pull, tractors, veggies, crafts, etc. and of course, music.
A group of 20 musicians who have been entertaining audiences for over 25 years. They perform at churches, community halls and fundraisers throughout the Valley.

Each individual square was a hand-painted picture by different artists.

Friday evening we were treated to a great concert by Honeymoon Suite, a 1980's rock band hailing from Niagara Falls, Ontario, currently touring Canada. A great performance.
Paul and I enjoyed having the opportunity of experiencing a local country exhibition and plan to attend again in the future.
