If you are looking for something to do in Northern BC on sunny day, the Prince George Exhibition just celebrated its 99th annual exhibition and fair. There are midway rides open and specialized days for seniors, kids and many special events planned for the week long event! In 2011, the main events included performances by Trooper (a great rock and roll band) and several local talents on stage! Tourism Prince George Visitors Information Centers were lucky enough to have tickets to give away for more than not only the events, but also free admission coupons!
There are several sponsors and booths at the Prince George Exhibition for food, fresh lemonade and of course the mini donuts that everyone looks for at the fair! If you are interested in seeing prize livestock and bull riding, the PGX is the place for you to be - with several events and showings going on throughout the entire week of exhibitions! Prior to the event, there is submission openings for photography from all ages with themes prevailing, as well as several other competitions for you to get involved in!
The fair was a great turnout like usual and I hope that everyone can come out and celebrate the 100th annual PGX with Prince George in 2012! We will be in store for some more local entertainment and special events for next year!
