As I entered the Keystone Centre, I was amazed by the incredible turnout of fairgoers. A very nice lady led me through crowd of adults and small children who were smiling and enjoying the fair.

We made our way to the Star 94.7 viewing room, and she said, with a laugh, "it’s much like swimming upstream."
I arrived to take pictures at the dinner and reception that was held on April 5 to recognize the contributions the sponsors make to the success of the evening performance.
Recognized that evening was MTS, represented by president Kelvin Shepherd. MTS sponsored The Grand Prix final championship horse jumping event at the fair with a prize purse of $25,000.
Also recognized that evening was Kubota Canada, which sponsored the Six Horse Hitch Championship class, Doug Murray, the Brandon Chamber of Commerce Business Man of the Year, and Brandon Police Service Chief Ian Grant. Visiting the president’s box was course designer Werner Deeg, who traveled from Feuchtwangen, Germany to be a part of the Fair.
Next event: Manitoba Summer Fair, June 4-8 at the Keystone Centre. For more information: brandonfairs.com
