The weather wasn’t as cooperative for the Riceville Fair as it had been for other local agricultural fairs making a comeback after getting cancelled by the pandemic last year. But fair volunteers and spectators still showed their sup- port by welcoming the return of one of the oldest farm fairs in Ontario. Saturday was cool and cloudy but still comfortable for fairgoers who wandered through the exhibition hall with its award- winning displays of local produce, flower arrangements, home arts, and other dis- plays. Over in the show ring, riders of all ages guided their horses through their paces before the judges in the showmanship riding. Live music filled the air as the various exhibitions took place. Sunday’s antique trac- tor pull entrants had a track that was more slippery than expected for driving thanks to a heavy morning rain but drivers still carried on to prove who had the toughest, stronger tractor.
