Heavy horses make return to annual fair

Elkhorn, MB (CKLQ) - The Elkhorn Agricultural Society Fair is back for its 125th year.

The three day event kicks off on Thursday with a movie under the stars, but will continue all the way until Saturday.

The fair, which involves a horse show, youth rodeo and other agricultural exhibits, will include the return of the Heavy Horses.

President of the Agricultural Society, Even Overand, says it's good to have them back.

"It's important to have the horses back to keep true to our agricultural traditions," said Overand.

He says the event is still a very important event locally, eve though a lot of the agricultural fairs are beginning to fade away across the province.

"We're expecting more people this year than last because we have a few more new events," said Overand.

The event will also feature music, a pancake breakfast and children's entertainment throughout the weekend.
