People of all ages have turned out for this week's Nova Scotia Provincial Exhibition to enjoy a variety of features, including the midway rides. Attendance figures are up this year, much to the delight of exhibition general manager Roger McCallum.
BIBLE HILL - Roger McCallum likes what he sees when looking at attendance figures at the Nova Scotia Provincial Exhibition.
McCallum, the exhibition's general manager, said a quick count indicated attendance on opening day Tuesday was up slightly from figures on the same day last year and said the same seemed to be happening Wednesday.
"They're definitely up from last year and I'm happy with that," McCallum said.
McCallum said he felt a stronger crowd was on hand throughout the day Wednesday and added the six and eight cylinder demolition derby at Truro Raceway would likely put attendance well over last year's figure.
McCallum said he felt the strong start was due to several factors, including the weather and the list of activities scheduled at the Bible Hill exhibition grounds.
"We try to put on a good show and have people enjoy coming to the ex," he said.
