The weather couldn’t have been better for day two of the 159th edition of the Almonte Fair.
Skies were sunny and temperatures moderate, drawing a good crowd this afternoon. (The grounds are still unusually wet in places after our record-breaking recent rains, but that’s a minor inconvenience at worst.)
The midway and the agricultural events were well-attended, as were the displays in the Ag Hall. The main event tonight is the Canada Stage Night Show at the Grandstand, starting at 7 pm.
The gates open at 10 a.m. Sunday for the final day of the fair.
